The Red River Ex Returns After Two Years Off Due to COVID-19

The Red River Ex will return in 2022 after getting canceled in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID-19. Winnipeg’s largest fair will take place from June 17 – 26, 2022. Visitors are not required to be vaccinated.

Since 1952, The Red River Ex has been bringing together families and the community to celebrate agriculture and good times in Manitoba. This annual event features world-class music, mouth-watering cuisine, and activities for all ages.

The event will be BIGGER and BETTER than ever with the most loved rides (North American Midway Entertainment) to the forever-favourites like Extreme Dogs and DooDoo the Clown!
