The Annapolis Valley Exhibition has been held annually in Lawrencetown since 1927. Over the years it has held a number of different names and has grown into a huge agricultural week long event.
The Valley Ex takes place the third week of August each year and goes from Monday until Saturday. The focus of the exhibition is the agricultural industry. One of the main goals is to expose youth to farming so that they may take an interest and see that it offers viable careers for them in the future.
The 2010 Annapolis Valley Exhibition will be held from August 16th to 21st. There are many events held throughout the week from concerts to a rodeo. This year the concerts will be Grass Mountain Hobo's on Thursday, April Wine on Friday, and Julian Austin on Saturday.
Some of the other events being held are a Baby Contest, Miss Valley Ex, Little Miss Ex, Little Mr Cowboy, Ex Idol and more.
