AUBURN, Ala.—Auburn University’s 2013 Fall Roundup and Taste of Alabama Agriculture is set for Homecoming Saturday, October 12, from 9 a.m. to noon at Ag Heritage Park. Activities will be set up on Ag Heritage Park’s south side, with the main entrance located at the Alabama Farmers Pavilion, 620-A S. Donahue Drive.
Ag Roundup, which has earned a reputation over the past 33 years as Auburn’s largest tailgate party, is open to everyone and features a wide range of foods grown and/or produced in Alabama—such as corn dogs, farm-raised shrimp, burgers, boiled peanuts, satsumas, fried catfish, fried chicken, sweet potato fries, turnip greens and cornbread. In addition to the food, Ag Roundup offers informative displays and children’s activities as well as live and silent auctions that raise money for College of Agriculture scholarships.
Kickoff time for the Auburn–Western Carolina homecoming game is 1 p.m. Ag Heritage Park is located only two and a half blocks south of Jordan-Hare Stadium.
Admission to Ag Roundup is $5, payable at the gate; children 6 and under are admitted free.
Ag Roundup is co-sponsored by the College of Agriculture and the AU Agricultural Alumni Association, with corporate partners Milo’s Tea, John Deere and SunSouth.
Ag-related businesses, on-campus departments and organizations and commodity groups are invited to set up exhibits for free at Ag Roundup. Exhibitors will have about 15 feet of setup space, each with a table and chairs, and are invited to bring small tents, up to 10 feet by 10 feet.
No product sales are allowed at Ag Roundup, but exhibitors can offer free product samples. Donations of items for the two auctions also are welcome.
