Surrey’s birthplace was founded as a small farm community in 1870, that over time has grown from a rural and agricultural community into a bustling hub of commercial activity. Cloverdale is a unique neighbourhood with its blend of old and new, a historic main street and a prospering agriculture industry that’s still flourishing to this day.
But don’t let its quaint appearance fool you. Some big things happen in this little community! In addition to the rodeo itself, the Cloverdale Rodeo & Exhibition Fairgrounds and the Bill Reid Millennium Amphitheatre host Western Canada’s biggest Canada Day celebration, as well as other events like Rugged Maniac, an exciting obstacle course race that’s held in different cities across North America. And not one, but two award-winning chefs who also just happen to be reality TV stars come from Cloverdale! Matthew Stowe won Top Chef Canada in 2013 and David Jorge won MasterChef Canada in 2015.
