The end of summer is very close 😦 and I for one am NOT ready for what comes next, It feels like we didn’t have a summer but such is life..LOL. When we get to the end of Aug I stat looking forward to the fair and the smells that fall brings. It’s a time of celebration and harvest, so like every year for the past 160 year all things agricultural will be celebrated in Orangeville this weekend when the gates open on the annual fall fair and bring summer holidays for kids to a close.
For the last 160 years the Orangeville Fair has been serving fun and excitement to Dufferin county, so this year should be no different. It’ll take place from Aug. 29 to 31 at the Orangeville Agricultural Society Event Centre located on 5th Sideroad in Mono. As always it’s organized and hosted by the OAS and over the years has been one of the highlights of rural life. The Fair is a sort of exhibition of things combined with entertainment including cow, hourse-shows,an amazing amount of things for the family to do, 4-H exhibits, midways, demolition derby, and don’t forget about the local music.
And don’t forget about the prizes awarded for the best fruit, baked goods or handiwork, horses and livestock. And that meant bragging rights and increased economic returns.
Taking place throughout the weekend, it will be home to craft displays, including children’s crafts; popular vendors and food; antique power equipment displays; livestock shows; live music; a beer tent; Albion Amusements Midway; agricultural displays; pony rides and a petting zoo. Other exclusive attractions and events will take place daily.
Admission for adults 14 and older is $10. For children six to 13 years old, the cost to get in is $6. Younger children are admitted free.
An adult weekend pass is $25, and a family weekend pass costs $50.
Gates open each day at 8:30 a.m.
