We have regretfully made the difficult decision to cancel Cornucopia Fest this year.

Setup for the event takes two days, so we were unable to delay the decision any longer. The decision is based not on the threat of rain, but on the winds predicted for the next several days as well as, at this time, uncertainty about the path of Hurricane Joaquin (which has the potential to affect tent takedown on Monday). About half of Cornucopia’s activities and exhibits are housed in tents. The winds predicted for the next few days will make it unsafe and perhaps physically impossible for the vendor to put up the tents and the tents themselves unsafe to be in and around.

Please note that the Cornucopia 5K is still on. Click here to learn more and to register.

We thank you for your interest in Cornucopia Fest and the programs of the College of Agriculture, Health and Natural Resources.

We look forward to seeing you at Cornucopia 2016!
