Welcome to 2022
Welcome to the 2022 Peterborough Ex!
This year the Peterborough Ex will be a bit of a different event. While we’re still hosting an Ex, it will be spread out over several individual days and will be hosted at multiple locations.
The last couple of years have allowed our Board and volunteers time to step back and look at our mandate and our capacity to deliver on that mandate. We’ve also been working with the City to ensure that we have the necessary access to Morrow Park to continue to hold our events. The change has been challenging; to our volunteer Board and to the City, as we try to work together to coordinate a different looking Ex.
True as the pastures themselves, we will continue to renew and grow to provide agriculture and food education events for residents in Peterborough City and County to participate in. Our ever popular Homecraft show will be happening. We’re also hosting animal exhibits including an open horse show and the rabbit and cavy show. These are all fun events to enter or to get up close and learn about agriculture.
What you won’t see at the 2022 Peterborough Ex is the midway or the rodeo. We will continue to assess this as we look at how we can use Morrow Park now and well into the future and how we can better deliver on our mandate.
We are grateful for our supporters, our volunteers and sponsors who continue to rise up to the challenge in the name of food and agriculture education. I also invite you to get involved – as an exhibitor, a spectator or even a volunteer. We welcome you.
