Calling all volunteers for tradition of feast, football and fun

A volunteer helping at CSU's 2017 Ag Day

Ag Day 2018 logoCSU’s famous Ag Day is less than a month away and volunteers are invited to be a part of the university’s tradition of feast, football and fun.

Ag Day is a giant tailgate barbecue featuring many Colorado agricultural commodities such as beef, lamb, pork, potatoes, beans and dairy. The 37th Annual Ag Day will take place on Saturday, Sept. 22, immediately before CSU’s football game against Illinois State. The barbecue will be held on campus, just north of Canvas Stadium, west of the Lory Student Center.

For the third year, Ag Day and Colorado 4-H will be celebrated together. For more information on Ag Day, visit the website.

$6 football ticket, complimentary BBQ ticket, 2018 Ag Day hat

All volunteers will receive a $6 football ticket to see all the action between the Rams vs. Redbirds, a complimentary BBQ ticket and a 2018 Ag Day hat. Volunteers can choose from a number of different assignments that will be filled on a first come, first served basis. These assignments include, but are not limited to: working with commodity groups to serve food, helping with beverage distribution (soft drinks and water) and handing out plates and silverware.

Volunteers are asked to work approximately six hours: one hour of set-up, four hours for the event and one hour post-event clean-up. Volunteer shift times will be determined closer to the event. Volunteers are given a lunch break to take part in the Ag Day festivities. For questions about volunteering, please contact the College of Agricultural Sciences Dean’s Office at or call 970-491-6274.
