Zambia Farmers Day

Zambia Farmers Day

August 7
Farmers Day celebrates the country of Zambia's agricultural sector, praises their efforts in providing crops to feed the country, and gives them a day to relax from their labors. Governmental officials normally give speeches outlining the advances in the harvest of crops, particularly maize. But average citizens enjoy a variety of sporting events that are held on the Farmers Day weekend. In 2005 Mobil Oil Zambia began sponsoring the Zambia Closed Tennis Championship on Farmers Day. Other events include soccer championships.
