The Red River Ex is just over a month away and organizers have offered up a preview of what visitors can expect this year.

The annual exhibition runs June 14-23 and will include shows, concerts, entertainment, animals and more.

New this year is the Continental Stock Dog Championship — the first-ever competition where stock dogs coral three sheep in under four minutes for the chance to win a $10,000 grand prize.

Also on the agenda is an equestrian acrobatic show where riders perform acrobatic tricks on horseback.

On the concert front, Classified, Trooper, Faber Drive, George Canyon and Glass Tiger are just a few of the names attendees can look forward to seeing.

Advance gate tickets are available at Sobeys, Mac’s or RedRiverEx.com for $9. Visit the Ex’s website for a complete rundown of this year’s events and attractions.

ChrisD.ca is proud to once again be partnering with the Red River Ex this year. Keep an eye on our website in the coming weeks for your chance to win gate passes.
