It’s one of the most significant infrastructure projects in Stampede history. The Agrium Western Event Centre is the largest facility of its kind in Canada. At 150,000 square feet, the facility dramatically increases the available agriculture space for holding year-round events at Stampede Park.
The world-class centre includes the main arena, with 2,500 spectator seats, a show arena floor measuring 125 feet by 250 feet, and generous concourse space. The centre also features an Exhibition Hall. The hall can be used for a variety of events including livestock shows and auctions, trade and consumer shows, and an entertainment venue. The educational portion of the facility will focus on year-round school programming for youth to learn about world food sustainability.
Agrium Western Event Centre will help to attract larger audiences to events and provide increased opportunity for the rural and urban communities to come together.
