The Royal Winter Fair in the western Manitoba city of Brandon is an agricultural exhibition held annually at the end of March.  In 2016 over 110,000 visitors passed through the turnstiles to check out the amazing critters.  The major events are cattle and horse competitions, equestrian, team horse wagons, hog chases, heifer round-ups, petting zoo, Royal fiddle competition, Barrel Racing, K-9 Equine relay and tiny pony chuck wagon races.

The fair is held at the Keystone Arena which has a capacity of 5,000 for the fair. The Royal Winter Fair is a great outing for all the family, including Grandma and Grandpa.
