The 92nd Washington Future Farmers of America (FFA) State Convention will be held May 12 – 14, 2022 at the Three Rivers Convention Center in Kennewick. Approximately 2,000 FFA members and guests from throughout Washington State will gather in the Tri-Cities with their iconic blue corduroy jackets, generating an economic impact of $661,496.
“The Tri-Cities is beyond thrilled to welcome the FFA State Convention for the first time to our community,” said Michael Novakovich, President & CEO of Visit Tri-Cities. “The Visit Tri-Cities team is working hard to build back convention and group business. Our community securing this convention and bringing 2,000 people into the Tri-Cities is such a win. And not only are the hotels and the Three Rivers Convention Center full, but our local restaurants and eateries can expect to be busy as the attendees will be patronizing local businesses for lunch and dinner.”
The State Convention had been held at Washington State University in Pullman since the convention’s inception 92 years ago.
The FFA was founded by a group of young farmers in 1928 with the mission to prepare future generations for the challenges of feeding a growing population. During the State Convention, attendees will have the opportunity to broaden their horizons in three specific areas: leadership, building communities, and strengthening agriculture.
