The Chamber of Commerce Agricultural Committee hosts the annual Ag Week Kickoff Breakfast. This breakfast is developed to promote Agriculture in Sandusky County and the important role it plays in our daily lives. It is also a way to kickoff National Ag Week.

The winner of the Farmer of the Year Award and Agricultural Service Award are presented during this yearly event.

The 2017 Ag Breakfast was held on March 10, 2017 and hosted more than 200 attendees.
