The 2022 edition of the Agricultural Fair in Ettelbruck celebrates the return of this great event as the public knew it before the pandemic.
The official inauguration took place this Friday afternoon after the Grand Duke had visited in the morning. The organisers are expecting around 40,000 visitors during the three days of Luxembourg's largest open-air fair at the Däichwisen (rue du Deich) in Ettelbruck.
Ministers Paulette Lenert and Claude Haagen also attended the event on Friday evening.
The Agricultural Fair has become the essential meeting point for all professionals in the green sector, trade and scientific research in agri-biotechnology. Particular emphasis is placed on the presentation of Luxembourgish products and on raising consumer awareness of regional products.
More than 2,000 pupils from 200 classes have already visited the site in Ettelbruck this Friday, an event that offers numerous workshops for people of all ages.
At the heart of all the debates and workshops is the topic of children's nutrition, especially during their schooling where more than 40,000 dishes are served every day in the school canteens.
The aim is to supply as many organic and regional products as possible to public establishments. A conference on this subject is planned for this weekend, the full programme can be found on fae.lu.
The website of the Agricultural Fair also offers an online version for visitors who prefer to visit the site virtually. The event is also broadcast live by our colleagues at RTL.lu.
