SOUTH KEYES – The 2019 Ottawa Valley Farm Show officially opened for its 92nd run today (Tues., March 12), starting off with a message from the event’s director and general manager.

“This show is a venue for farmers and industry professionals to meet, visit and share their passion,” said Emma Lackey, the show’s general manager. “The directors of the Ottawa Valley Seed Growers Association all have experience in agriculture and are proud to have organized and hosted this event for 92 years. Since it began, the show continues to grow with the agricultural industry offering current and relevant information and technology and connecting people.”

The event’s opening ceremony also welcomed Ottawa Senators hockey alumni meeting with the young West Carleton Warriors’ hockey team to congratulate them on winning the Good Deeds Cup. This award allows them to receive a total of $100,000 for a charity of their choice, a winner’s ceremony in their home town and feature on a broadcast television.

The Ottawa Valley Farm Show will continue to run through tomorrow (Wed., March 13) and Thurs., March 14.
