INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Next year’s Indiana State Fair will celebrate the state’s farmers and agricultural heritage.

Fair officials announced the plans Monday for the 2015 fair, with the theme “Year of the Farmer.” The fair has highlighted agricultural products such as popcorn, tomatoes, pigs, soybeans and dairy cows in previous years, but organizers want to feature the stories of farmers.

Fair director Cindy Hoye says she hopes fair visitors will gain understanding about how much farmers mean to their daily lives.

Events planned include a harvest dinner, a speaker series about modern agriculture and a creative writing contest for children about farmers. Next year’s fair is scheduled for Aug. 7-23.
