Big Iron Farm Show 1805 Main Avenue West
West Fargo, ND 58078-1301

The Big Iron Farm Show is easily accessible from the I-94 Interstate as well as Main Avenue and 13th Avenue. Free parking is available around the Fairgrounds during the show.
In 1980, a farm equipment show took root in Casselton, ND with the idea of showcasing the latest in “big iron.” This was indeed the start of something big. One year later, with a successful inaugural event behind them, the Red River Valley Fair Association moved the event to the spacious West Fargo Fairgrounds.
Since then, the event has grown each year, from a farm equipment show to a three-day celebration of rural living—agribusiness, health, innovation and technology. In 2015, more than 70,000 attendees came from across the nation and several other countries to see demonstrations, visit 900+ exhibit booths, connect with their peers and attend training sessions. Today, there is little doubt that Big Iron Farm Show is the event for agribusiness.
