The grand finale to the Farmers Bowl festivities, the Farmers Bowl Auction is a fabulous fun-filled event held for the benefit of Mayville State University and its students. The first Farmers Bowl Auction was held in 1997 and it generated more than $14,000. The success of this event grew steadily over the years.

The evening begins with a delicious buffet meal and silent auction bidding. The excitement ramps up later when the live auction begins. This much-anticipated tradition is a time when Mayville State alumni and friends gather to celebrate, raise funds, and help make dreams come true at Mayville State University.
