Nov. 3, 2014. As of press time, a few tickets are still available for the Watauga Cooperative Extension’s 59th annual Farm-City Banquet. The fundraising dinner will be held on Thursday, Nov. 6, so get your tickets to this event quickly, before the tickets are gone.

The 59th annual Farm-City Banquet will be held once again at the Boone United Methodist Church on Nov. 6 at 6 p.m. “Barns: Out Standing in Their Field,” is the theme for the 2014 Farm City Banquet, which is a celebration of locally produced farm products and farmers, food, entrepreneurs and supporters of local farms by the Watauga County Cooperative Extension Center and the community.

“This is really an opportunity to bring together the rural and the urban communities, the farmers and the businesses and individuals that support them,” said Jim Hamilton, county extension director at the Watauga County Cooperative Extension.

This event typically sells out every year, so be sure to get your tickets in advance. Tickets for the event are $10 for adults and $5 for children ages 6-12. Children five and under are admitted to the event for free. Tickets are available for purchase at the Cooperative Extension Office located at 971 W. King St. in Boone.

“We usually sell out of tickets a week before the banquet,” Hamilton said. “We strongly encourage people to buy their tickets as soon as possible to make sure they get a spot.”

This years sponsors include Southern Agriculture, Bare Essentials Natural Market, Carolina Farm Credit, New River Building Supply, Watauga County Cattleman Association, Watauga County Christmas Tree Association, Bandana’s and Hollering Green.
