An Evening with Wegmans

Agriculture Industry Banquet

November 16 | Lancaster, PA

An ideal opportunity to hear firsthand how this family-owned and women-led organization is building upon its strong brand and culture to help the individuals and communities it serves.

Wegmans' is Coming to Lancaster! In anticipation of Wegmans Food Market opening at The Crossings at Conestoga Creek in Lancaster County, we are pleased to welcome members of their team this November to share the story behind the Wegmans' brand of "helping families live healthier, better lives through food" and culture. The company was ranked #5 on Forbes magazine's 2016 list of America's Best Employers!

Wegmans will also share how they plan to connect to the local community by stocking the Lancaster location with regional farm fresh produce. In 2001, the organization was given the Chairman's Award from the Greater Rochester Metro Chamber of Commerce for a "sustained record of excellence, maintaining a strong investment in the community, and establishing a successful business operation."  

In addition to the keynote, we will be presenting the 2017 Delp C. Award to a resident or business of Lancaster County that has made a significant contribution to the agricultural community. The recipient demonstrates outstanding dedication and commitment to preserving and enhancing agriculture in Lancaster County.

Thursday, November 16 5:15 to 9 p.m. DoubleTree Resort by Hilton, Lancaster 2400 Willow Street Pike, Lancaster
