International Crop Expo Returns to Grand Forks
Minnesota Ag Connection - 02/13/2018

The International Crop Expo began 17 years ago as the fusion of three small farm shows. It's grown into a longstanding success that's regarded by some as the unofficial end of the area's general-farm-show winter season.

The event returns Feb. 21-22 at the Alerus Center in Grand Forks. Roughly 4,000 people and 170 exhibitors are expected to attend. It begins at 9 a.m. both days and ends at 5 p.m Feb. 21 and 4 p.m. Feb. 22. Admission and parking are free.
