Farm City Banquet

The Atchison Event Center proudly hosts the annual Farm City Banquet.  Every year, the Atchison area business community takes time to honor the rich agricultural heritage of the region and its people.  The banquet celebrates the cooperation between farm families and those in the cities and towns that have made Atchison such a unique place to live, work and raise a family.

Local businesses sponsor the event by purchasing tickets, which are then distributed to farm families free of charge. The evening includes booths sponsored by local businesses and organizations, a pie-baking contest, dinner and entertaining program.
