Canada's Farm Progress Show rebrands, changes dates, and moves inside

With the new year just around the corner, Canada’s Farm Progress Show has announced some key changes for the 2020 show. First off, there’s a new name — Canada’s Farm Show.

“We have been working hard with the advisory committee behind the scenes to build a new direction for the show,” says Tim Reid, president & CEO of Regina Exhibition Association Limited (REAL). “With the increase of global food demand on the horizon. now is the time for Canada’s Farm Show to redefine the show’s value proposition for the future. Farming is adapting and changing — farm shows need to do the same.”

The event will now be held a week earlier, running Tuesday to Thursday, June 16th to 19th, and be fully indoors, freeing up major space for parking and offering protection from the elements. Other changes include a ‘one ticket’ approach where a one-time admission will get you into all three days of the show. A speaker series will also be added with details to be announced in the new year.

In addition, the show will be introducing Alpha Bull Rodeo as part of the entertainment portion for the three-day event.

The show’s presenting sponsor, Viterra, will remain on board for another three years.

Registration for the event is now open.
