Here in Glen­garry, we know that sum­mer has fi­nally ar­rived when the Maxville Fair kicks off.

That’s ac­tu­ally true both fig­u­ra­tively and lit­er­ally. Sure, the Fair is, ar­guably, the first big event of the sum­mer, mostly be­cause it starts im­me­di­ately af­ter sum­mer be­gins.. This year’s edi­tion of the Maxville Fair runs June 26-28.

Like it does ev­ery year, the fair will serve up a blend of old-fash­ioned coun­try fair fun and mod­ern en­ter­tain­ment.

Be­cause it’s an old fash­ioned coun­try fair, the main fo­cus of the Maxville Fair is ru­ral life. Ex­pect to see farm­ing ex­hibits, agri­cul­tural com­pe­ti­tions and dis­plays, per­haps even learn to milk a cow in the Agri­cul­tural Aware­ness and Ed­u­ca­tion tent.

If you have never seen a cat­tle show, bring your cam­era, take a seat, and see some of the most beau­ti­ful cows and heifers in Canada and ad­mire the ex­per­tise and style of the han­dlers at the Maxville Spring Hol­stein Show and the 4-H show.

The ex­hi­bi­tion hall will be brim­ming with su­perb flower and plant dis­plays, crafts, jams, pre­serves, baked goods and hand­i­crafts.

The Maxville Fair has many other sta­ples – the English Horse and Pony Show, fire­fight­ers’ chal­lenges, High­land danc­ing com­pe­ti­tions, and a pa­rade.And of course there’s the mid­way. For what would a coun­try fair be with­out a Fer­ris wheel, candy ap­ples and games of chance?
