held in Lawrencetown from August 13th - 18th, 2012

History: Starting in 1927 as the Riverside Guernsey Club Show, the event became known as the Annapolis County Exhibition and later the Annapolis Valley Exhibition.  It began as a 1-day show, but changed to a 2-day event in 1928, adding a large tent to showcase indoor events.  The first permanent building to be constructed was the Dining Hall in 1930, at a cost of $1,100.  2 large barns and a sheep shed have since been added.

The exhibition has operated annually since it's inception, and during the 1950's and early 60's had one of the largest Guernsey Cattle shows east of the Royal Winter Fair.  The event is also famous for it's excellent fruit and vegetable displays.  In the late 90's, the Riverside Stage was constructed and concerts have become a major attraction.
