|Information||About The Annapolis Valley Exhibition:
Starting in 1927 as the Riverside Guernsey Club Show, our Ex became known as the Annapolis County Exhibition and later the Annapolis Valley Exhibition. It began as a 1-day show, but changed to a 2-day event in 1928, adding a large tent to showcase indoor events.
The exhibition has operated annually since its inception, and during the 1950's and early 60's had one of the largest Guernsey Cattle shows east of the Royal Winter Fair. The event is also famous for its excellent fruit and vegetable displays. In the late 90's, the Riverside Stage was constructed and concerts have become a major attraction.
Famous faces who have already performed on our stage include The Rankins, Michelle Wright, Trooper, April Wine, Doc Walker, Rita MacNeil, the Kentucky Headhunters, and Gordie Sampson, to name but a few.
The Annapolis Valley Exhibition has something for everyone!
