Where it all began...

Young Farmers have been enjoying Annual Convention since as far back as 1968 when the first ever recorded event was held in Harrogate.

Our list below shows where we have hosted the event in the last 50 years! Check out how many you have been to and send any memories from Convention to the communications team.
