The South Shore Exhibition is the largest agricultural exhibition in Nova Scotia and traces its roots back to 1891.

We are here to bring the fun back to the summer by offering good, old-fashioned horse and oxen pulls daily, light horse competitions, show horse events, arts and crafts, 4-H, beef and dairy displays, rabbit and poultry displays, petting barn, music and performances from local groups in our Main Building, vendors selling their wares, big name country music Saturday and rock on Friday on our Main Stage, and the parade always kicks off the week on Tuesday at 6 p.m.

We have the South Shore Idol singing competition for ages 13 - 18, Little Kid's Got Talent for ages 12 and under, Strongman Competition, Firefighter's Challenge, Kids day (Wednesday) with face painter/ balloon twister/ entertainment specifically for the kids, free admission everyday for kids 7 and under, Campbell's Midway has the rides and games, there are many food vendors available to satisfy any appetite, and so much more. There is something for every one in the family.  

Come see why we were voted by readers of the South Shore Breaker as the 2017  "Best Annual Community Event on the South Shore."
