Due to Covid 19 Public Health requirements we are planning for a virtual GBFW22 conference, but will pivot to an in-person event if guidelines allow.  The week will kick off with a 'Check Your Tech Tuesday' on Jan 4 and the commodity days will follow (Wed Jan 5 - Tues Jan 11) 

In 2022 the event will likely take place virtually, online. If public health guidelines allow, we will pivot to hold an in-person event at the Elmwood Community Centre. A decision regarding this will be made in September. The Elmwood Community Centre is located at 38 Concession Rd 10, Elmwood ON N0G 1S0, north of Hanover.  (Not in Elmvale).
In 2022 the only registration required is your ticket purchase to participate in the virtual event (done through this website). Tickets can be purchased ahead of time or on the day of. On demand video recordings can also be viewed for 30 days after the event with the purchase of a ticket.

All  days: $30 + HST and service fees

Please make cheques payable to: "Grey Bruce Famers' Week"

GBFW welcomes children to the conference.  Please keep in mind that while speakers are presenting their content, we need to show them respect and keep the room as quiet as possible for redording purposes.  We leave it to your best judgement to decide if your children will enjoy the event.

In past years exhibitors set-up from 11:00 am - 4:00 pm on set up day (prior to the first commodity day) Exhibitors attending only certain days can set-up starting at 8:00 am daily.

The bulk of the Trade Show and speakers are in the upstairs of the Elmwood Community Centre, with meals and a few booths taking place on the lower level. Most of the Trade Show booths run along the perimeter of the upstairs hall. There are also 2 islands of Trade Show booths.

Throughout the course of the week with, the audience and Trade Show, we could have as many as 1300. The number of attendees really is dependant on the weather.

Both upper and lower levels are accessable by ramp.  Washrooms are also accessible on both levels.  

Presentations & breaks (including refreshments and snacks) are on the upper level.  Lunch is on the lower level.  We will be happy to help you make sure you have optimal viewing and reserve a spot for you at the front of the hall.  Please let us know in advance so we can plan the best for you.  Plenty of volunteers are available to assist with your needs in getting around the facility etc.

In times of extreme weather conditions or other situations, it may be necessary for GBFW to cancel a day. Decisions will be made as quickly as possible and will be communicated to registrants with notices placed on the website Home page, and broadcasted on CKNX and Country 93 radio.  We have not cancelled very often in over 50 years.  Unless there are a significant number of road closures, the show will go on.  However, the safety of all participants is always paramount in our minds.
For an in-person event the Trade Show and our exhibitors are available during the registration period, over lunch, throughout multiple breaks and at the end of the day. There are many opportunities to meet and chat throughout the conference.

There is plenty of onside parking at the hall, additional parking is on the roadside. If the weather conditions are ideal and plowing has occurred, you can park in the ball park area at the arena, to the side and behind the community centre.

Please go to the Event Schedule page and search for the day of interest.
