Bob Evans 40th Annual Farm Festival, October 8-10

The 40th Annual Bob Evans Farm Festival is taking place at the Bob Evans Homestead October 8-10 in Rio Grande, Ohio. With 569 family restaurants in 18 states, this annual festival is an opportunity for the restaurant to welcome their guests “home” to get a first-hand look at where it all started.

Attended by more than 30,000 people each year, the Farm Festival offers a wide array of attractions, from lessons on cow milking to potato sack races, pie-eating contests, lumberjack demonstrations, and bluegrass, gospel and country music concerts and farm-favorites like kettle corn, apple cider, traditional hot bean soup, and Bob Evans’ signature sausage will be available to eat. Guests can also visit the first Bob Evans restaurant and the Homestead Museum, which offers a visual tour through the life of Mr. Evans and his dream that grew to become an iconic brand. On-site primitive camping even provides accommodation right on the farm.

I hope you’ll consider attending the 40th Annual Bob Evans Farm Festival and I’m happy to offer you exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the festival’s skilled artisans and/or a one on one interview with Ray McKinniss, the man who operates Bob Evans farm today.
