The Islands Agriculture Show is back at Cowichan Exhibition Park and this year’s theme is the “Changing Face of Agriculture.”

The show is hosted at the Cowichan Exhibition grounds every second year.

“We’ve been in Comox, we’ve been in Port Alberni and next year it’s in Saanich and the following year it will come back to Cowichan,” said show manager Shari Paterson, adding the event is getting bigger and more popular each year.

“It’s definitely growing,” Paterson noted. “It’s to find out what’s new in the industry. [Farmers] come for the conference sessions to learn from the experts.”

But that’s not all. It isn’t just for people who work in farming and related industries. Regular folks enjoy the event as well.

About 2,000 visitors will attend the show Friday and Saturday, Registration is required. More at the Agriculture Show website.
