I have many thoughts as I look back on the past two years. There have been many changes throughout the exhibitions. Some have new managers, some have new representatives on the EANS Board of Directors, and there are changes within the individual exhibitions such as board changes, volunteer changes and facility/infrastructure changes. EANS also is experiencing changes as we have been developing an updated Strategic \plan and are about to have some new board members and some new executive members for 2019.
This year I attended 6 exhibitions and 1 fair where I was involved in opening ceremonies and evaluations. I also enjoyed many activities including 4H, talent shows, motor sports, draft horse competitions ans ex pulls as well as many commercial, home craft and agricultural displays.
The Nova Scotia Department of Agriculture is pleased to work closely with EANS to provide agriculture and 4H-based events to provincial exhibitions and community fair programs. Agriculture education events give the general public the experience of interacting with producers first hand, teaching children the importance of where their food comes from and encouraging consumers to buy local and in season.

Fairs and exhibitions are an integral part of the rural fabric of Nova Scotia. They have always provided an opportunity to showcase rural living to the general public, generate significant revenue for rural communities and offer a stage for local farmers to share their agricultural story.

Exhibitions have provided a venue for promotion of local agriculture to the general public, networking opportunities for consumers and producers, a venue for

One of the best things about attending a Nova Scotia exhibition is spending time together as a family. Exhibitions promote family values, hard work, respect for animals, and community values. Nova Scotia exhibitions offer something for everyone; young and old.
From Hand to Hand
Handcrafts are becoming a lost art in today's society. One of the things that we love about Exhibitions and Fairs is the ability to teach the new generation about just how creative we can be. From needlepoint to cooking, we showcase every level of craftsmanship and provide local artisans with an ideal setting to share their art.
