The Ozarks Fall Farmfest began in 1980 when Farm Talk Newspaper, a regional weekly agricultural publication, and the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds joined together to host a show featuring the latest in agricultural products and services in the Ozarks.

In the nearly four decades following, the Ozarks Fall Farmfest has attracted tens of thousands of farmers and ranchers annually on the first weekend in October at the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds in Springfield, Missouri.

Today, the Ozarks Fall Farmfest offers over 1,000 agricultural and rural living exhibits and features more than 500 head of registered livestock.
