Governments Support Royal Manitoba Winter Fair

The Canadian and Manitoba governments are providing $20,000 over two years to support the 2019 and 2020 Manitoba Cup Equestrian Competition at the Royal Manitoba Winter Fair.

“Our government is proud to support initiatives that help educate and raise awareness on Canada’s agricultural sector,” said Federal Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada Marie-Claude Bibeau. “This event showcases equestrian excellence and demonstrates the diversity and economic importance of our agricultural industry.”

This year's fair runs from March 25 to the 30th in Brandon.

“We are proud to support Manitoba’s premiere indoor equestrian show, featuring top level show jumping, hackney and draft horse competitions,” said Manitoba Agriculture Minister Ralph Eichler.

An additional $10,000 will be provided to the Royal Farm yard this year, which is devoted to enhancing the relationship and building public trust between farmers and consumers. The 44,000 square foot Royal Farm Yard is a winter fair highlight for many families, offering an agricultural education area, live animal and cattle shows, and much more.

The money is flowing through the Canadian Agricultural Partnership.
