KEY ATTRACTIONS

2022 FEATURE EXHIBIT

Manitoba 150

Welcome back to the Threshermens Reunion and Stampede. Since we saw you last, Manitoba’s 150th birthday has come and gone.

We’re searching through our artifacts to find the most interesting stories from 150 years of Manitoba agricultural innovation. And we’re inviting exhibitors to bring their own made-in-Manitoba restorations to display at our show. See exhibitors for more information.

Looking ahead, we’ll be featuring the International Cockshutt Club in 2023. And in 2024, we’ll be featuring steam, with a special record-setting attempt at the largest number of steam engines pulling plows.

There are equipment demonstrations throughout the day with feature demonstrations at 11:00 am and 4:00 pm. Experts will show you how everything works and how everything sounds.

Working Horses

The working horses are at it all day long.

From hauling sheaves for the threshing contest (just after the parade) to plowing the demonstration field (morning and late afternoon), these beauties are well worth watching.

Take a ride through the Pioneer Village on a horse-drawn wagon. Rides leave from the train station 10:30 AM to 11:30 AM and then again after the threshing contest until 5:00 PM.
