A Look Back at the Beginning of Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show

Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show is celebrating its 20th show this year, and what better way to explore what the show has to offer than to look back at how the show started many years ago.

From humble beginnings at a small site just south of the 401 and only a few hundred exhibitors, the show has grown significantly and now welcomes over 40,000 visitors and more than 700 exhibitors each year.
