Desjardins Expo Ormstown

Desjardins Expo Ormstown has been a household name across the Haut-Saint-Laurent region since its inception, over a century ago. Founded in 1910 by the Livestock Breeders’ Association (LBA) of the District of Beauharnois Inc, Desjardins Expo Ormstown gave the opportunity to local animal lovers to showcase their livestock and horses of the highest quality.

Throughout the years, Desjardins Expo Ormstown has not only become a renown agricultural fair, but grew to expand its reach to a larger audience. Nowadays, Expo Ormstown offers activities for everyone: parades, livestock exhibitions, equestrian events, agriculture displays, a midway, a demolition derby, music, tractor pulls, local products tastings, and the list goes on!
