This year we are excited to celebrate the 71st anniversary of the Grand National Livestock Exposition, Horse Show and Rodeo! As the world changes this event remains a pillar of western tradition in the San Francisco Bay Area. It has never been more important for residents of California to know the narrative of agriculture; it remains a signiﬁcant piece of Californian's Story. California‘s farmers and ranchers continue to perform admirably in their essential job of feeding people. Here at the Grand National, participants and exhibitors from all over the west come together to share their passion for agriculture.
