Canadian Western Agribition

Saskatchewan Saskatoon Pride Mosaic Stadium

Canadian Western Agribition, otherwise known as simply Agribition, is an annual agricultural trade show held at Evraz Place in Regina, Saskatchewan, typically held during the last week of November.

The show won the 2013 and 2015 Saskatchewan Tourism Award of Excellence for Event of the Year.[citation needed]

History

The first Agribition show was held in Regina from November 30 to December 3, 1971 and has taken place every year since. Chris Sutter of Redvers, Saskatchewan was the first president of Canadian Western Agribition. Bill Small of Craven, Saskatchewan was the show's first vice-president. A book which chronicled the first 29 years of the show, titled Agribition, was published in 1990.

Agribition will celebrate its 50th year in 2020; the event will be pushed back a week in order to accommodate the 108th Grey Cup, which is being hosted by nearby Mosaic Stadium.[1]
