History: The Halifax County Exhibition began in the 1870's in Cole Harbour, but relocated to Middle Musquodoboit in 1884 under the sponsorship of the Middle Musquodoboit Agricultural Society.  With roots tracing back to the early 1800's, the Society was incorporated in 1909 and purchased property for the development of the exhibition grounds which exist today - a property which has the distinction of having been registered as a Historical Site.  The exhibition has operated annually with the exception of one year during the Second World War.  In 1965, the exhibition date was changed from September to mid-August and the exhibition was expanded to 4 days.

The theme of the exhibition remains focused on agriculture and is known as the "Family Exhibition".  Exhibitors range in age from 3 to 90 plus.  There is a large dairy show, and the Dahlia exhibit is one of the largest non-competitive shows east of Montreal.

Opening day is Children's Day and includes a parade with over 70 exhibits.  The 4-day event continues to promote agricultural awareness and, by combining old and new, will also continue to provide a "Family Exhibition" that attracts young and old alike.
