A Moving Celebration at Agribition

Regina, SK

November 25 - 30, 2019

Tucked between Canada’s western waves of grain sits Regina, Saskatchewan, whose CN terminal emits a strong current connecting agricultural customers across the Prairies to worldwide markets. This CN terminal serves a critical role in the livelihood of western farmers, moving grain from the Prairies to export markets, thus assuring abundance for current and future harvests.

Experience 100 years of CN

As we retrace our tracks, we are posting up in Regina for 6 days to give the public a chance to interact with everything CN. Join us in unpacking the chapters of our history, which features the people who have shaped us, the landscapes that have provided space for us, and a hands-on conversation about train safety and the future of rail transport.

From November 25-30

Opening times vary. See schedule below.
The Moving Celebration is opening its doors to the public with a series of interactive exhibitions to explore, placing you in the hands of CN guides, available at your disposal to walk you through every chapter of our exhibit. Hear their stories and stick around for a show by our special musical guests. Due to limited capacity, guests will be admitted to the event on a first-come, first-served basis.
