Virden Indoor Rodeo

Virden is widely known for it "Virden Indoor Rodeo and Wild West Daze". This event, held in late August, attracts cowboys and visitors from a large surrounding area. The whole community becomes involved hosting downtown promotional events, a demolition derby, Team Roping, pet shows, a parade, the rodeo dance and of course, an M.R.C.A.( Mantioba Rodeo Cowboys Association) and C.C.A.(Canadian Cowboys Association) approved rodeo and High School rodeo. In 2000, 2001, and 2002, the Virden rodeo was declared top rodeo by the M.R.C.A. cowboys and cowgirls. In 2003, the M.R.C.A. finals were held in Virden rather than the regular rodeo.  Aleaha Moore, originally from Virden was crowned Miss Rodeo Canada for 2006.

Virden Regional Airshow

Virden has hosted two airshows in the past.  The 2006 airshow include performances by the Canadian Armed Forces "Snowbirds" precision flying team as well as several aerobatic performers. While no firm schedule has been established, options are being discussed to make this a bi-annual event.
