The 2021 LEX Will Be In-Person.
The Lindsay Agricultural Society (LAS) is pleased to announce that they are planning for the 2021 Lindsay Exhibition to be held in-person, September 18 – 26, 2021.
The new LEX schedule for 2021 distributes the competitions across four additional days to reduce the number of people on the grounds and at the barns at any one time to allow for better physical distancing. Assuming the Haliburton Kawartha Pine Ridge (HKPR) Health Unit is not in lockdown, the LAS is confident that all competitive aspects of the LEX will be able to be held in-person using comprehensive protocols that have been designed with the health and safety of competitors, officials, visitors, and volunteers in mind. Other LEX favourites such as the WoofJocks, Demolition Derby, midway rides, and grandstand entertainment will also be available, if restrictions allow.
“We’re confident that we can give exhibitors an opportunity to compete in a safe environment that adheres to all the required COVID-19 safety protocols,” said Lois Batty, DVM, President of the LAS. “The spacious LEX Grounds and our multiple airy buildings work well in this type of situation.”
“We’re building on the experience we’ve gained hosting smaller events over the last six months to create a plan that will work safely within the protocols that have been established,” stated Harry Stoddart, General Manager of the LAS.
More information about tickets and the full LEX entertainment schedule will be available in late summer. Be sure to follow @lindsayexhibition on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for updates or visit lindsayex.com.
