Camrose Regional Exhibition (CRE) puts Camrose Spring Rodeo on Hiatus

Camrose, AB – The Camrose Regional Exhibition announced today that they will not be running the Camrose Spring Rodeo in April 2019 as the program will be put on hiatus to design and develop a new agriculture experience for 2020.

“The board reviewed the impact of hosting the rodeo on the budget and decided this event needed to be fully revamped” said Mark Schneider, President of the Board.  “The costs of producing an indoor rodeo have increased significantly while the revenues were dropping.  In the best interest of the CRE the decision was made to put the program on hiatus to allow appropriate time to plan and develop a new experience for 2020.”

 “I look forward to working with the passionate members of the CRE board and our talented Agriculture Events Manager, Marilyn Lee to develop a unique experience for all” said Dianne Kohler, Executive Director of CRE. “We have started the process of examining all our CRE Signature Events to ensure we are delivering Event Experiences that excite everyone in Camrose and the surrounding area while remaining fiscally responsible to our membership.” 

CRE Signature Events include Festival of Trees, Growing Rural Tourism, Canadian Bull Congress and Camrose Spring Rodeo.
