Provincial Exhibition Of Manitoba
Established in 1882, Provincial Exhibition Of Manitoba was formed shortly after the incorporation of the city and two years before the Chamber of Commerce. Originally, the organization was formed by the agricultural community surrounding the city to showcase and sell their agricultural products. From this idea the Brandon Agricultural Society was formed and in October of 1882 local businessmen put up $200 and called for entries for cattle, horses, pigs, poultry and grains. This was the start of the exhibition’s first fair, today known as the Manitoba Summer Fair.
