Indianapolis, IN: The 92nd Annual FFA National Convention & Expo will be Wednesday, October 30 through Saturday, November 2 at the Lucas Oil Stadium, with a seating capacity of 67,000, in “Circle City”. (NOTE: The South Street, in front of the stadium, will be blocked off from Oct 30-Nov 1 to accommodate food trucks.)
The Lucas Oil Stadium will be host to the Opening and General Sessions, as well as the Talent Competition portions of the convention.
In addition, the “FFA Blueroom”, a 17,000 square foot interactive area showcasing cutting edge agricultural technology, research, and innovation. The organizers expect over 67,000 members to attend the 92 annual events from our 50 States, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
FFA stands for Future Farmers of America and is over 700,000 strong – with 2019 seeing a growth of over 30,000 new members. And, as stated on the FFA Website, “These three letters are a part of our history and our heritage that will never change”.
Now over 700,000 members strong (the FFA organization grew by nearly 30,000 in 2018), these young adults are specifically focusing on respect for our planet and good stewardship over productive land; all while attempting to feed the world.
More than 2,500 FFA conventioners have volunteered to take part in lending a hand to helping the local Indianapolis community between October 30 and November 2.
Just a few of the projects that are lined up for the students are:
-Gleaners Food Bank
-Indianapolis Culture Trail
-Indianapolis City Market
New to the 2019 Convention, will be:
- The FFA will recognize 50 years of women in FFA with an on-stage presentation and special breakfast.
- Culver’s will be sponsoring not one, but two special FFA Member Command Performance concerts: by Old Dominion and Brandon Lay & Brett Young, with special guest Tenille Townes
The FFA Convention is scheduled to be held in Indianapolis on through 2031, which will be their 104th year!
