LEX to be held in person in 2021

By Lindsay Advocate

The Lindsay Agricultural Society (LAS) has announced they are planning for the 2021 Lindsay Exhibition to be held in-person this year, Sept. 18 – 26.

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, says a media release.

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. Follow @lindsayexhibition on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for updates or visit lindsayex.com.
