The Austin Area Chamber of Commerce invites you to mark your calendar for the 38th Chamber Ag Appreciation Summer Cookout from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 16,.

This event, also known as the “Big Feed,” attracts more than 1,000 diners to the Mower County Fairgrounds each year.

“Judging from ticket sales, this will be our biggest Big Feed yet,” said Chamber President Joseph Bower. “Come out to enjoy a Windsor chop dinner and ice cream from our dairy princesses. It’s all about great food, fun and community spirit to support our Ag businesses and students.”
