16th Annual Ag Day Celebration to be Held Aug. 30

Ag Day 1997 offers a parking lot full of fun, food and entertainment beginning at noon Aug. 30 outside Hughes Stadium prior to the University of Nevada Wolfpack vs. Colorado State Rams football game.

Help celebrate Colorado agriculture and enjoy an array of quality Colorado foods, activities and live entertainment. Colorado agricultural producers will supply food that is grown, produced or processed from the mountains to the plains.

The Ag Day experience continues at 2 p.m., when the Colorado State Rams, picked to win the 1997 Western Athletic Conference championship, play their first game of the season.

Colorado agricultural organizations and Colorado State University’s College of Agricultural Sciences and department of intercollegiate athletics are sponsoring the event, now in its 16th year.

A barbecue/football combination ticket costs $20. Barbecue- only tickets will be sold for $8, subject to availability.

For more information or to order tickets, contact the College of Agricultural Sciences at (970) 491-6274 or Alumni Relations at (970) 491-6533.
