New Farming for Life Exhibit at Northwest Washington Fair

The Northwest Washington Fair has passed a major milestone with its Farm Pavilion and the Farming for Life Experience inside the new building.

“Over 50 businesses, organizations, and individuals have donated over $4 million to make the Farm Pavilion, which will house a 10,000-square-foot exhibition space, a reality,” said Jim Baron, general manager of the Northwest Washington Fair. “Now we are attempting to raise $2 million to fund the Farming for Life Experience, which will offer educational, interactive and immersive exhibits engaging visitors of all ages. Donations will help us highlight the importance of agriculture in our area.”

Assuming funding is received, the Farming for Life Experience will include a three-screen panoramic video and a 360-degree theater.

“Through animated light, sound and multi-image depictions, the 360 Surround Theater will dramatically portray the full process of creating food by Northwest Washington farmers,” Baron said. “Created to stimulate all the senses, this immersive experience will bring a new understanding to what it means to be a farmer in the 21st century.
