For over 100 years, Olds Agricultural Society has been one of those organizations that town and country folk both participate in. And now it has evolved into the Olds Regional Exhibition.
Welcome to the Olds Regional Exhibition

The Olds Regional Exhibition, formerly Olds Agricultural Society, is considered to be one of the essential pillar organizations in Olds Alberta. Olds is less than an hour north of Calgary, in the rich farming land of central Alberta. The population of the town is over 8,500 people, mainly employed in agricultural, oil & gas, or business industries.

ORE provides venues and facilitates events in our community, for youth, those in the agricultural industry, and to enhance rural lifestyles.
