The agricultural exhibition at Oripää airfield started off in the 1980 as auction of used agricultural machinery. In 1982, for the first time, agricultural machines and equipment were introduced. Approximately 2,000 people visited the site.
This year on single Saturday, July 7, 26,200 visitors attended OKRA Agricultural Show, which is a new daily visitor record. During a total of four days, 81,050 guests visited Okra. To date, every new show set a new visitor record.

“The exhibitors have been happy with the sale,” says Jukka Isotalo, exhibition manager.
