held in Bridgewater from July 24th - 29th, 2012

History: The first exhibition held in Bridgewater occurred in 1891 in a facility known as the Drill Shed.  Records from a meeting held the following year show that the Lunenburg County Exhibition was to be help in Bridgewater on the 5th and 6th of October under the auspices of the Bridgewater Agricultural Society.  Since then, the "Big Ex" has continued to grow and now covers approximately 42 acres, which hosts over 500 head of livestock, commercial booths, art and craft exhibits, and the always popular 4H events.  Now known as the South Shore Exhibition, this event has taken place every year since 1891, with the exception of 1939, when the Canadian military took over the grounds to train the West Nova Scotia Battalion.
