You’re Invited to The Florida Grower Citrus Show Tailgate Party

Web AdminUncategorized

The game has officially changed! The Florida Grower tailgate party during the Florida Grower Citrus Show is the Indian River’s newest most anticipated event. It will feature a smorgasbord of mouthwatering eats, America’s favorite tailgate game and more than 50 exhibitors!

Now under AgNet Media management, the Florida Grower Citrus Show is introducing a fun new format for the event. This year, the trade show will be one big tailgate party! Growers will be able to visit with vendors and sample food from exhibitors.

Be sure to stop and visit each vendor! Exhibitors will be competing for the “top tailgater” award. Growers can vote for their favorite tailgate dish, and the exhibitor with the most votes wins. Growers who participate by voting will be entered into a drawing for a prize.

The tailgate hub will be the center of the action. This will be where you can grab breakfast and a coffee in the morning and a BBQ lunch during the tailgate party in between seminar sessions. Try your hand at cornhole while you network with exhibitors. There is no better place to casually and comfortably network with your fellow growers and show your support for Indian River agriculture.

The tailgate party will take place on April 13 in Fort Pierce in the parking lot between the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences Indian River Research and Education Center and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service, U.S. Horticultural Research Laboratory.

Registration is complimentary for commercial growers, farm owners and managers, professional crop advisers, association executives and board members, and the government, legislative, and agricultural research communities.

If your company is interested in exhibiting at the event, the trade show is currently sold out, but if you fill out a registration form you can be added to the wait list. There are still a few sponsorship opportunities available. Reach out to us at to secure your sponsorship.

Complete details about the seminar sessions will be available soon. Be sure to mark your calendar for the new and improved Florida Grower Citrus Show on April 13. To learn more, including host hotel information, visit
