To be able to better serve the Vermont agricultural community, the Vermont Farm Show Board voted to cancel the 2023 show and to take a year to reassess its goals. This decision was not an easy one, especially after having to cancel last year's show due to the pandemic; we are hopeful that we will be back better than ever in 2024!
