Maxville Fair signals start of Summer
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?
