AUBURN UNIVERSITY – Auburn University’s 2013 Fall Roundup and Taste of Alabama Agriculture is set for homecoming Saturday, Oct. 12, from 9 a.m. to noon at Ag Heritage Park prior to the Auburn – Western Carolina football game. Activities will be set up on Ag Heritage Park’s south side, with the main entrance located at the Alabama Farmers Pavilion, 620-A South Donahue Drive.

In addition to the food, Ag Roundup offers children’s activities, informative exhibits and live and silent auctions with proceeds to benefit College of Agriculture scholarships.
