Who we are ...
... the South Shore Exhibition is the largest agricultural exhibition in Nova Scotia. We have been around since 1891 and are located on 42 acres.
We are here to bring the fun back to the summer by offering good, old-fashioned horse & oxen pulls daily, light horse competitions, show horse events, arts & crafts, 4-H, beef & dairy displays, rabbit & poultry displays, petting barn, music and performances from local groups in our Main Building, vendors selling their wares, big name country music Saturday and rock on Friday on our Main Stage, and the parade always kicks off the week on Tuesday at 6 p.m.
Come see why we were voted by readers of the South Shore Breaker as the 2017 "Best Annual Community Event on the South Shore!!"

From 1891 to present
An Idea Is Born
In 1891, Bridgewater was the home to the first Exhibition held in the Drill Shed. Records indicate that the Lunenburg County Exhibition was to be held in Bridgewater on the 5th & 6th days of October.
The Lunenburg County Exhibition (1891).
The Lunenburg County Exhibition Commission (1960).
The Lunenburg County South Shore Exhibition (1967).
And finally, in 1973 the name was changed and remains The South Shore Exhibition.
We continue to grow
The exhibition has continued to grow and has expanded to approximately 42 acres of land, and houses over 500 head of livestock, commercial booth space, a large Arts & Crafts display, 4-H exhibits, Arts & Heritage building, Senior’s Drop in Centre, hourly musical entertainment in the Main Building, Big Name Country artists on the Main Stage Saturday evening, the midway – which is provided by Campbell’s Amusements, and so much more.
