Discover Agriculture in the City

March 16, 2024 10:00 am

Outlet Collection Winnipeg - 555 Sterling Lyon Parkway

On Saturday, March 16, Outlet Collection Winnipeg (555 Sterling Lyon Parkway) will be transformed into a hands-on event celebrating where our food comes from and the people that help get it to our tables, as the annual Discover Agriculture in the City event showcases the best of Manitoba agriculture and the agri-food sector.

The free event kicks off at 10am near Guest Services with a wide range of interactive exhibits on display and the opportunity to meet Manitoba farmers until 5pm. The University of Manitoba Food Fight will feature new food products created by students right here in our province which will be presented to a panel of judges. MBP will feature the Guardians of the Grasslands tablets, the brand-new hands-on display from the Farm and Food Discovery Centre, free swag, recipes, and District 9 Director Trevor Sund will be available to answer questions.

Hands-on displays include the chance to plant your own strawberry plant while a free photo booth will allow participants to share our event on social media as well.

Canada’s agriculture and agri-food system generated over $134.9 billion to Canada’s GDP in 2021 and employs 2.1 million people across the country, including 35,260 in Manitoba alone. Manitoba is home to 24 agri-food research and development centres, and our province leads the way in providing cutting edge technology and skills to the entire agriculture sector.
