Due to the increasing spread of COVID-19 in the United States, Wisconsin Public Service (WPS) is canceling its 60th WPS Farm Show, which was to take place in Oshkosh March 31-April 2. The decision was made in order to protect the health and safety of attendees, and follows recommendations issued Thursday by Gov. Tony Evers and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.
WPS has begun communicating with exhibitors and vendors about the show’s cancellation.
A springtime tradition since 1961, the WPS Farm Show provides farmers throughout the Midwest an opportunity to see the agricultural industry’s latest innovations and products. Approximately 20,000 people and nearly 500 exhibitors were scheduled to attend this year’s event in Oshkosh.
At this time, WPS anticipates hosting the WPS Farm Show again in 2021.
