Discover Agriculture in the City event at The Forks – Postponed

Given ongoing developments in terms of COVID-19 and following social distancing advice outlined by the Province of Manitoba, organizers have decided to postpone Discover Agriculture in the City, originally scheduled for Saturday March 14 at The Forks, as a precaution. A new date will be determined for late Spring 2020.

Provincial health authorities recommend that if you are concerned about exposure to or risk of contracting COVID-19, you should first call Health Links–Info Sante at 204-788-8200 or 1-888-315-9257 (toll-free) to ensure that you are provided with medical advice appropriate to your specific health concerns.

We would like to thank our exhibitors, partners, and the general public for their interest in this year’s event, and we look forward to welcoming Manitobans to experience the best our industry has to offer later this year.

Canada’s agriculture and agri-food industry contributed over $143 billion to Canada’s GDP in 2018 and employs 2.3 million people across the country, including almost 15,000 in the City of Winnipeg alone. Manitoba is home to 24 agri-food research and development centres, and our province leads the way in providing cutting edge technology and skills to the entire agriculture sector.
