An Agricultural Centennial: Farm Bureau & Ag Extension Exhibit
In January 1917, Professor V. C. Bryant of UC Agricultural Extension came to Merced to talk about the benefits of forming a farm bureau. On March 7, 1917, 417 Merced County farmers signed a petition to request the Merced County supervisors to allocate $2,000 a year for a farm advisor. This was the beginning of the UC Agricultural Extension and Farm Bureau in Merced County. As these two organizations are turning 100 this year, come to see how Ag education has changed the way of farming in Merced County over the last 100 years.

Stand Up Comedy
Michael Jr. More Than Funny Tour
Hailed as one of today’s most gifted comedians, Michael Jr. got his start when George Wallace took him to the legendary Comedy & Magic Club in Hermosa Beach. Even though the club is the home of Jay Leno and “The Tonight Show” staff, the club’s owner slipped the unknown comic onstage to perform. A week later, Michael Jr. was performing at the “Just for Laughs” comedy festival in Montreal where he became the first comedian to ever appear live via satellite on “The Tonight Show.”

Play
Nevermore: The Imaginary Life and Mysterious Death of Edgar Allan Poe
“Nevermore” is a unique and wildly theatrical musical play combining haunting music, poetic storytelling, and stunning stagecraft to tell the fascinating and moving life story of iconic American writer Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849). ? ?A literary rock star in his day, Poe struggled with tragedy and addiction, poverty and loss, yet produced some of the world’s most original, visionary and enduring literature before dying in unexplained circumstances at the age of 40. At once gorgeous and grotesque, Nevermore blurs the line between fact and fiction, exploring the events that shaped Poe’s character and career and giving powerful expression to Poe’s words “all that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.”
