AUBURN, Ala. —Fall Ag Roundup and Taste of Alabama Agriculture, easily the biggest tailgate party on the Auburn University campus, is set for homecoming Saturday, Sept. 27, at Ag Heritage Park, before the Auburn-Louisiana Tech football game.
Game time has not been announced to date, but the ever-popular Ag Roundup—now entering its 35th year—will open four hours before kickoff and wrap up an hour prior to.
Co-sponsored by the Auburn Agricultural Alumni Association and College of Agriculture, Ag Roundup aims to increase awareness of agriculture’s importance to Alabama’s economy by spotlighting the multitude of foods and food products produced by the state’s farmers.
And there is food aplenty, with items typically running the gamut from corndogs and fried catfish to collards greens and cornbread. For a $5 admission fee, fans can enjoy all they care to eat as well as musical entertainment, children’s games, educational displays and live and silent auctions that raise money for College of Agriculture scholarships. Ag Roundup tickets can be purchased at the gate; children 6 and under are admitted free.
Ag Heritage Park is located on South Donahue Drive, between Lem Morrison Drive and West Samford Avenue. The main entrance to Ag Roundup will be next to the Alabama Farmers Pavilion, 620-A South Donahue.
