About Dairy Fest
Dairy Fest is an annual three day event that was started in Brookings, SD in 2014. This three day event consists of the Got Milk Gala, Fork to Farm event, and a Carnival for the public, which offers tours of the South Dakota State University Davis Dairy Plant and a tour and free lunch on a commercial dairy farm. Each year our event grows and develops to further increase awareness of the dairy industry. We strive to bring the community together by providing conversation and learning opportunities about the dairy industry in a celebration type atmosphere.
The festival’s mission is to provide a free, family-friendly event while simultaneously informing consumers about the dairy industry, its sustainability, food products produced, all while advocating to youth about potential careers within the industry.
