Each year, the Atchison area business community takes time to honor the rich agricultural heritage of the region and its people. In 2017, the Farm-City Banquet returns for the 41st year, as we celebrate that cooperation between farm families and those in the cities and towns that have made Atchison such a unique place to live, work and raise a family.
The event is sponsored by local businesses and the evening includes booths sponsored by local businesses and organizations, a pie-baking contest, dinner and entertaining program.
For more information about this exciting event, please call the Chamber at 913-367-2427 or stop by the Santa Fe Depot at 200 S. 10th Street in Atchison.
