Fall Fairs History in Ontario

The nature of harvest season agricultural fairs fall fairs has changed since the 1800’s when the harvest ended and farmers came together, to talk about yield and techniques usually set up in the forum of an agricultural society. Many fairs are Summer Agricultural Fairs. There were always competitions, as to best yields and talks of the best “bull”, all evolving into fall fair competitions, for the best corn relish, or cherry pie, or best Rose, or rabbit, or antique or home made quilt. Today the fall fairs still bring together the farming community and the public with many fun events, 100 mile foods and produce, activities, homemade products, including arts and crafts, and the competitive side and tradition of deciding who has the best at the “Fall Fair”. A getaway best buy is a fall fair that can always be combined with a fun family getaway weekend vacation.
