For 46 years, Northlands has been proud to be the window to the west. If you follow the sounds of hoof-beats leading from the farm into Edmonton, Alberta, you will wind up at Farmfair International – one of Canada’s largest fall agriculture showcases. With eight halls filled with western entertainment including, top producing sales, showcases & clinicians and the Heritage Ranch Rodeo, Farmfair International is your destination for all things equine.

Why Farmfair International?

  • Some of the highest quality equine livestock come to Farmfair International each year to be shown and sold.

2019 Equine Events

After careful review and consideration of the Equine programs at Farmfair International, numerous event changes will be made beginning at the 2019 event. These changes are due to financial and operational requirements.

The following events will not be held at Farmfair in 2019:

  • Northlands Bloodstock Horse Sale
  • Northlands Ranch Horse Sale
  • Northlands Barrel Racing Futurity
  • Northlands Team Roping Futurity
  • Rodeo Future Champions

No prizing or incentive prizing will be awarded for any of these programs.

2019 Equine programs will include:

  • Extreme Cowboy Competition
