What is Evraz Place?

Situated in the heart of Regina, Evraz Place is the largest interconnected event complex in Canada and the centre of sport, business and entertainment for the community. The Regina Exhibition Association Limited (REAL) is the not-for-profit corporation that operates the 100-acre Evraz Place property.

Evraz Place hosts the majority of Regina’s major events, including Canada’s Farm Progress Show, Queen City Ex and Canadian Western Agribition. Evraz Place is home to the Saskatchewan Roughriders, Regina Pats, Regina Soccer Association, many minor and recreational sports, and numerous concerts, trade shows and conventions.

Our Story

Community is at the heart of everything we do. 

We’re proud to celebrate the infrastructure that has been developed for nearly 4 million annual visitors. Most importantly, we’re proud of what this property does for our community and what it means for people:

  • We drive more than $425M in provincial economic impact and $219M in local economic impact
  • We add 4,784 jobs provincially and nearly 1 in 40 jobs in Regina exists because of REAL.
  • We serve 2.4M people in our community through our recreational facilities to support healthy lifestyles.
  • We offer community events to 3.5M guests year-round that provide entertainment value and memories
  • We provide more than $125,000 of paid volunteer hours to local non-profit groups to raise needed funds for their organizations and initiatives.

Whether it’s family time at the Queen City Ex, cheering on the home team, scoring your first goal, or jumping with excitement at your first rock concert…

We’re in the business of creating memorable experiences for the people in our community that last a lifetime.

What is Evraz Place 2.0?

We need our community members who come to us for those memorable experiences, to help define where we go from here.

 Input from our community will help ensure Evraz Place continues to:

  • Be relevant,
  • meet community needs, and
  • provide value for our generation and future generations to come

Futures Committee

The REAL Board of Directors formed a Futures Committee that includes community leaders and Board directors who are leading a review of best practices in other communities, along with a broad public engagement effort to capture the voice of the community on their future needs and aspirations for Evraz Place.

Each committee member brings a unique perspective, and hearing from a broad segment of our community will help us build a better strategic plan.

This hinges on a whole new way of looking at the future, one that asks “what’s possible?” while also fostering strong leadership from the City and our community partners in terms of ensuring sustainable community development.

Next Steps

REAL will compile all feedback to help develop a new 10-15 year strategic plan that outlines top priorities for future development as identified by the community. Planning will begin in early 2019, and the REAL Board will present the plan to the City of Regina and City Council later in the year to determine next steps.
