The Estevan Exhibition Association is looking back on 2017 as one wild ride for them.

A couple of very successful events in 2017 have led the Exhibition Association to make some big plans for next year.

“We had a very successful fair, rodeo, and most of the events that went off on the exhibition grounds were profitable, and there’s some big changes going there with renovations and a few other discussions at board level that are coming for the first part of next year,” stated Exhibition Association President Byron Stepp.

With the fair this year, they managed to entertain the over 8700 people that made their way through the exhibition grounds in only three days, with one of the biggest draws being the Calamity Cowgirls. As for next year, the fair may have a different look.

“I just recently signed a contract with the fair provider, there is some changes to the fair, but we’re optimistic that we’ll be able to bring and exciting show again next year.”

All of the events received a ton of local support, including over 30 entries in the cities parade before the rodeo and another 69 entries in this year’s Dirty Dozen Mud Run, both of which are up from the year before.

“We want to thank the local business community and our sponsors as well as the local citizens of Estevan for providing another great year.”

Events won’t start on the exhibition grounds again until the snow melts in the summer when the Estevan Fair will return for antoher great year.
