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.

ORE is very proud of our traditional and prestigious livestock event production. Livestock shows including beef, dairy, sheep, light horse and draft horse have seen sustainability, momentum and even growth at a time when the exhibition industry has witnessed significant decline or elimination of primary agriculture showcases. ORE attributes this unique achievement to the commitment and dedication of volunteers who work tirelessly to assure each event's success. Check out the following ORE Signature Events that are spotlighted throughout the year and truly showcase exhibitor talent, commercial commerce and outstanding agri-business.
