It’s been nine years since Manitoba Ag Days announced the “Ag Days Gives Back” community giving program. 100% of the 50/50 funds raised go back to agricultural organizations and communities throughout the province.

To date we have given back $375,500.00. 

General Manager Kristen Phillips says “We wanted to give back some of the show’s success to the communities where our exhibitors and patrons live. Over the course of the last nine years, we have been able to support many amazing projects that are helping to grow communities across the region.”

You still have time to purchase a ticket at www.agdays.com/buy5050 or by calling us at the office at 204-866-4400. Ticket sales will stop at 4:00 PM on Thursday (Jan 20) with the winner being drawn at 4:30 PM on Thursday January 20th, 2022.
