Lethbridge & District Exhibition’s Lotteries program is once again giving back to the community, announcing the YWCA Lethbridge & District as its community partner for its 2023 50/50 Lottery campaign.

 

YWCA Lethbridge & District has been a staple in Southern Alberta for more than 60 years, continuing to grow and respond to the needs of the community. Housing, homelessness, poverty, domestic and sexual violence, volunteerism, youth empowerment, leadership and a place to belong are all addressed at YWCA.

Lethbridge & District Pro Rodeo

Pro Rodeo returns Aug. 22 - 24, following a record breaking attendance year in 2023. One of Canada’s top 10 paying rodeos, Lethbridge’s burgeoning reputation and late-season scheduling make it an ideal stop for competitors, with World, Canadian and Calgary Stampede champions dotting the lineup each night. The Lethbridge & District Pro Rodeo presented by Dennis' Dirtworx is also the only rodeo in the country to include Relay Races, a thrilling traditional Indigenous competition, as part of each rodeo performance. 

 

Tickets are available now and include same day admission to Whoop-Up Days! Check out Family Night on Friday, Aug. 23 where youth tickets are only $10!
