Founded in 1976, Ward Bros. Construction Ltd. has grown to be one of the largest Construction Management and Design Build companies in Southern Alberta. It has been responsible for completing numerous marquee projects throughout the region, including West Lethbridge Centre, The Crossings Ice Complex (“ATB Centre Phase One”) and the Enmax Centre renovation. Ward Bros. Construction was named recipient of the 2020 Business Legacy Award by the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce.

“We are honoured to have been selected by Lethbridge & District Exhibition as their construction partner on the new Agri-food Hub & Trade Centre. We look forward to working with the entire team to successfully deliver this transformational project for all of Southern Alberta” said Colin Ward, Chief Operating Officer of Ward Bros.

However, the programming included virtual gourmet pancake breakfasts (through Umami Shop), drive-thru pancake breakfasts, drive-thru Jumbo Ears, drive-thru baked potato stands and a two-day food truck festival held at Exhibition Park.

Additionally, 660 kg of flour milled by Parrish & Heimbecker in Lethbridge, Alberta, 450 litres of Canola Oil processed by Richardson Oil Seeds in Lethbridge, Alberta and 160 kg of sugar processed by Rogers Sugar is Taber, Alberta was used in the production of Jumbo Ears over the three day event.

Lethbridge, AB – Lethbridge Exhibition Park and Downtown Lethbridge Business Revitalization Zone announce today that the 14th annual Downtown Farmers’ Market will return to the downtown core, however in a new location on 2nd Avenue South between 4th Street and 5th Street South.

The Downtown Lethbridge Farmers’ Market will be open each Wednesday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. beginning July 22, 2020. Aside from a new location, this year’s market will adhere to strict social distancing guidelines set out by AHS, including but not limited to a one-entry/one-exit system.

The health and safety of guests, vendors and staff is the highest priority when putting on a market. Vendors will be required to submit a signed COVID-19 screening document prior to each week’s market. Vendors and guests who self-diagnose or show any of the common symptoms for COVID-19 are required to not participate in Farmers’ Market activities until you have been given approval and appropriate documentation to do so by a medical professional.

"Despite everything that has gone on this year, we’re very excited to welcome back the Wednesday Farmers’ Market” commented Ted Stilson, Downtown BRZ Executive Director. “Although the downtown has been impacted by COVID-19, there are still a number of public and private developments taking place this year. Those investments, combined with new business openings, a new brand and the addition of a number of outdoor patio spaces, have provided us with a lot of optimism for the future of our downtown.”

“We’re strongly committed to the revitalization efforts that are ongoing in our City’s core. The Farmers’ Market is one way we can contribute to this and provide some normalcy in a year that has been anything but” stated Exhibition Park Chief Operating Officer, Mike Warkentin.

Lethbridge and District Exhibition Announces Cancellation of 2020 Whoop-Up Days

by Exhibition Park  |  Apr, 24 2020  |  Events & Entertainment


Lethbridge, AB – Due to ongoing developments regarding the COVID-19 pandemic it is with heavy hearts that we announce the cancellation of the 2020 edition of Whoop-Up Days Family Festival.  On April 23, 2020 Dr. Deena Hinshaw, Alberta's Chief Medical Officer of Health, announced that as a result of ongoing concerns regarding the spread of COVID-19, a ban on all Alberta gatherings, including festivals and similar mass gatherings is now in place for the remainder of the summer.

Exhibition Park CEO, Rudy Friesen says “The Alberta Health Services decision is one that we fully support, as it is in the best interest of the health and safety of the residents of our community.  Even though we are in the business of mass gatherings, now is not the time.” 

Furthermore, as a result of Dr. Hinshaw’s announcement, Exhibition Park facilities remain closed to the public and all scheduled on-site summer events/gatherings are being either cancelled or postponed to a future date.  One potential exception is Farmers’ Market.  The food portion of the Market is considered by the Province to be an essential service.  As such, potential iterations of a weekly food-only Market are being examined.  Our current efforts focus on whether we can provide this service while still adhering to all restrictions currently in place, including the limit on gatherings of 15 people, maintaining a 2 metre distance, etc.  Further details will be announced in the coming weeks.

We would like to thank our countless stakeholders, partners, exhibitors and guests for their ongoing support and understanding. This is most definitely a challenging time, and the safety of our community continues to be our priority. We will patiently wait until we can once more bring our Region together through Agriculture, Entertainment and Commerce.
