About Bob Evans Farm Festival

Bob Evans Down on the Farm® isn’t just a catchy commercial jingle. Bob Evans was a real farmer, and his farm is a real place in Rio Grande, Ohio. And starting in 1971, Bob Evans has celebrated America’s farmers down on the farm with our annual Farm Festival. This year, we celebrate our 52nd Farm Festival with a wide range of entertainment, one-of-a-kind handmade arts and crafts, farm contests, delicious local food, and much more!


FREE primitive camping (no electric or water hookups are available). Spots are on a first come, first served basis and no reservations are needed (there’s plenty of space!). Portable water, porta-john restrooms, a dump station and 24-hour security are provided.


While you could dine at the site of the first Bob Evans Restaurant, the Farm Festival also features fall favorites including bean soup, kettle corn, apple dumplings, ice cream, Ohio-made cheese, cider slushies and local treats.


Along with the great food, the Farm Festival features crafts from artisans from around the country and incredible music, live demonstrations and family-friendly amusements.

Wandering around the festival, you’ll find hand-crafted decorations, toys, artisan foods from creators around the country.

On the festival stage, enjoy live music from renowned bluegrass, country and gospel musicians.
