Canada’s Farm Progress Show is taking place this month in Regina.

The show is aimed at agricultural producers, manufacturers and buyers; the public are also welcome to attend. It usually attracts over 60,000 visitors from over 50 countries each year.

There will be seminars and workshops hosted by a number of experts on various topics, agricultural or not, including Michelle Landsburg and Kevin Bergeron. There is an Outstanding Young Farmer’s Award luncheon, the West Coast Lumberjack Show and an Empowering Conference for women.

There is set to be an antique truck and tractor parade as well as a showcase of these vintage vehicles. There will also be a wine talk, wine bar and beer garden when guests need a break. In addition, Chad Brownlee will be giving a concert on June 21 beginning at 7:00 PM; tickets are $30 each.

One important part is the ThinkAG Career and Education Expo, which is designed to attract the next generation of farmers.

There will also be a Farmyard Inventions competition with a grand prize of $5,000 and an Innovation Pavilion.

Many of those attending this Regina conference will likely be bringing along their business cards to exchange with their peers.

Canada’s Farm Progress Show will be held at Evraz Place from June 20 to 22. Tickets are $25 for two days in advance or $15 daily; children aged 12 and under are admitted free. Call 306-781-9200 to learn more.
