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.

Membership fee in the Olds Regional Exhibition is $10 per year (Canadian funds), paid before commencement of the Annual General Meeting in March of each year. The membership fee entitles the individual to the full privileges and responsibilities of membership, including the right to be elected to office and vote in the election for the Board of Directors.

  • Core Values
    • OAS' core values and objectives have remained steadfast for generations; this is evidenced by the fact that we celebrate the involvement of three generations of some families in our governance and operations. These core values are Agriculture, Youth and Community. In contrast to this perennial stewardship, OAS is also mandated by the Board and membership to welcome the future with a genuine commitment to being sustainable in Financial Security, Ag-Industry Leadership and Community Vitality.

  • Signature Events
    • ORE is very proud of our traditional and prestigious livestock event production. We invite you to check out the ORE Signature Events held throughout the year that truly showcase exhibitor talent, commercial commerce and outstanding agri-business. These include the Spring Classic Steer & Heifer Show, Central Alberta's Draft Horse Classic, Summer Synergy, and community events such as the Santa Claus Parade, Farmer's Market, and Santa Run.
