Current and Past Tours
After an overwhelmingly successful first year, the Thanks For Farming Tour is back with 3 new locations for 2021.

- Kinetic Exhibition Park, Swift Current, Saskatchewan – July 13-14th
- Meridian Exhibition Centre Centre, Winkler, Manitoba – July 28-29th
The vision of the Thanks For Farming Tour is simple; to hold events that allow us to connect with the Ag community, say THANK YOU to the resilient and adaptable growers, producers and breeders and give back to Ag in Canada. Last summer we visited 9 different communities across the prairies. We concluded our 2020 Tour with 77 exhibitors and 20 sponsors joining us for a sold out show in Red Deer, AB. The Thanks for Farming Tour allows us to provide good local food, great local drinks, and valuable sessions about mental health in Ag as well as a variety of topics ranging from farm finance to the very real seed and soil issues Canadian farmers face.
The Thanks for Farming tour proudly donates the net proceeds from ticket sales to local youth or mental health non-profit organizations focused on agriculture. Last year we were able to donate over $20,000 back to local organizations in the communities we visited.
