51st Annual Bob Evans Farm Festival


Bob Evans Down on the Farm® isn’t just a catchy commercial jingle. Bob Evans was a real farmer, and his farm is a real place in Rio Grande, Ohio. And starting in 1971, Bob Evans has celebrated America’s farmers down on the farm with our annual Farm Festival. This year, we celebrate our 51st Farm Festival with a wide range of entertainment, one-of-a-kind handmade arts and crafts, farm contests, delicious local food, and much more!
