Oklahoma Farm Bureau Farm City Festival Coming Up Wednesday Feb 26th

Sat, 22 Feb 2020 15:01:59 CST

Oklahoma Farm Bureau Farm City Festival Coming Up Wednesday Feb 26th The Annual Farm City Festival at the Capitol, hosted by the Oklahoma Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership Committee, is scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 26.

We talked with Mignon Bolay, a State Committee Chair from Noble County, about the festival, and she told us the event is one of their more popular activities as it brings in rural women leaders from around the state to meet with state lawmakers.

The Noble County farm leader said it is a great example of true grassroots policy development in action.

“We’re grateful to have this opportunity, and we believe it’s important to support and honor legislators and their staff,” Bolay said.

Traditionally, the women leaders gather in the rotunda area of the Capitol to prepare and serve meals. Still, due to ongoing construction and remodeling of the Capitol, the meals will be prepared off-site and brought to the legislators’ offices.

The event is also popular among legislators and their staff as they get the chance to taste a home-cooked meal brought in by the women leaders.
This year the menu includes home-cooked barbeque beef with all the trimmings.

“We want the legislators to know we care about them, and it gives us a chance to share our ideas,” said Bolay.
