Welcome to the 144th Dresden Exhibition!

The Dresden Agricultural Society would like to extend a warm welcome to exhibitors and patrons of all ages. The membership delegated the Board of Directors to provide the town of Dresden with the 144th Dresden Exhibition. When you come to this year's Dresden Exhibition, you will notice some new changes to the grounds- new roof on the grandstand, lighting, and upgraded equipment for the raceway. We were able put in new tote boards and a new roof on he Ed Stanley 4H building.

The 144th Dresden Exhibition has entered the digital age. The Fair Prize book has been completely redone and all entries are made online using Assist Expo. Since all of the information is available online, we are able to reduce our carbon footprint and be environmentally friendly reducing the amount printed. We have had great participation from all schools in Lambton Kent this year. Our cover winner is Sydney Jackson from Dresden Area Central School.

The board along with our community partners hope you enjoy seeing all of the new things to see and explore at the Dresden Exhibition. A big thank you to all who are involved in making the 144th year successful. We hope to see you all at the fair!
