Registration for the 96th Western Growers Annual Meeting is now open! The annual meeting will be held Nov. 2-5, 2022 at the Venetian Resort Hotel in Las Vegas – and the lineup for two of the gathering’s most popular events has been finalized.

Western Growers will honor California agricultural icon John Harris with the 2022 Award of Honor. The Award of Honor is Western Growers’ highest recognition of achievement and is given to individuals who have contributed extensively to the agricultural community.

With more than 50 years’ experience in ranching, farming, hospitality and thoroughbred horse racing, Harris embodies the diversity of California agribusiness. The Harris Farms Group includes Harris Fresh and the Harris Farms Thoroughbred Division, in addition to the landmark property known to all Californians on the I-5.

Harris’ achievements will be celebrated at the Award of Honor Dinner Gala on Nov. 4, 2022.

In addition, Karl Rove, former Deputy Chief of Staff and Senior Advisor to President George W. Bush, will speak at the PAC Lunch on Nov. 3, 2022.

Before the White House, he ran Rove + Co., a Texas based public affairs firm that consulted on over 75 GOP campaigns for Senator, Governor, Congress and statewide offices in 24 states.
