The 2022 March Classic will be held on March 22, 2022, at RBC Place in London. The event will be in-person, but speakers will also be live-streamed for those who are not able to attend.
Our stellar lineup for the 2022 March Classic includes:

- The first Canadian live taping of The U.S. Farm Report with host Tyne Morgan.
- Sonny Perdue, the 31st United States Secretary of Agriculture.
- Canadian comedian and the Internet’s favourite (unproven) Dad: Stewart Reynolds, also known as Brittlestar as the entertainment feature for the evening banquet.
“We are excited to be able to see everyone in person again. We know it’s been difficult to not be together very much over the past couple of years, but the March Classic is the perfect event to bring us back together again,” said Victoria Berry, Manager, Communications, Grain Farmers of Ontario. “We are also proud to announce our incredible speaker lineup, which will shine a spotlight on diverse topics for our attendees – from leadership to trade and political relationships, to grain markets, and beyond.”
The March Classic has been the premier event for the Grain Farmers of Ontario since 2010.
“We would like to thank all of the farmer-members, exhibitors and sponsors for their loyal support of the March Classic throughout the years,” said Crosby Devitt, CEO, Grain Farmers of Ontario. “Without your support it would be impossible to create this amazing legacy event, that helps bring our farmer-members and the industry together.”
