Welcome to Warmland

On behalf of the Cowichan Valley Regional District and Economic Development Cowichan, we are pleased to welcome you to the seventh annual Islands Agriculture Show. The trade show and conference at Cowichan Exhibition Park provides a unique opportunity to welcome producers and farming representatives from across Vancouver Island to celebrate the many contributions that agriculture and food production make to our communities.


Within the Cowichan Valley Regional District, municipalities and electoral areas, First Nations communities and farming organizations each play a supportive role in contributing to the dialogue on food security and our local food system. We possess an abundance of agricultural leaders who are devoted to ensuring that farming remains an integral part of the social and economic fabric of our region. The Cowichan region is known as a food and culinary destination and as a region where small farm innovations in value-added food production and the meeting of agriculture and technology can take root.


While you are attending the Islands Agriculture Show, take time to get to know the changing face of agriculture by visiting with trade show representatives and attending the many workshops on offer. Cowichan welcomes you year-round to explore our agricultural heritage, award-winning wineries, farm markets and unique agri-tourism destinations.


We hope the Islands Agriculture Show provides you with inspiration and insights to last you throughout the year.
