Whoop-Up Days

Lethbridge and District Exhibition

Nothing says summer like the smell of popcorn and cotton candy on a warm breeze, or shrieks of glee at an evening fair.

Whoop-Up Days kicks off with a downtown parade, then moves to the exhibition grounds for festivities including live entertainment, a rodeo, food trucks and, of course, midway rides. Gather your friends and family and make the most of summer before it fades.

Whoop-Up Days at a glance

  • Date: End of August or beginning of September

  • How to get there: Cycle or drive to the Exhibition Park east of Henderson Lake. Parking is plentiful at both the exhibition grounds for a price or around Henderson Lake itself if you don’t mind a bit of a walk.

  • Where to stay: There are a few hotel options located just off 43rd St. S. (like Best Western Plus) that are conveniently close to Coulee Brew, a local restaurant and brewery. There’s also The Coast or The Sandman on Mayor Magrath Drive – both within a five-minute drive (or 30-minute walk) to the exhibition grounds.

  • What to bring: Water, sunscreen and money for food trucks
