All roads lead to Williamstown Fair
The Williamstown Fair, which runs this year from Aug. 7-9, is Canada’s Oldest Fair and it awaits you!
Nestled in the picturesque Village of Williamstown, one hour from both Ottawa and Montreal, the Williamstown Fair bridges the gap between rural and urban fairgoers.
The St. Lawrence Agricultural Society will be hosting the 204th Edition of this classic rural fair. Its rural way of life and heritage is presented in an informative and entertaining manner on 11 beautifully landscaped and shaded acres. The family oriented, clean and safe environment makes this the perfect way for the entire family to spend a most enjoyable weekend.
Agriculture is an important component of this fair. Displays of farming equipment and antiques can be found throughout the fairgrounds while the Agricultural Awareness Building highlights milk production, cheese making, forage, honey and wool spinning. The new ‘Sugar Shanty’ will showcase the maple industry. Produce from field and garden, culinary and handiworks can be found in the Exhibit Hall.
There are Holstein and Ayrshire cattle shows as well as the Glengarry 4-H Dairy Achievement Day competition. The English, Western and Paint Horse shows run throughout the weekend while the Friday night Heavy Horse Pull draws a tremendous crowd.
The Petting Zoo, sheep shearing, sheep herding, and blacksmith are very popular attractions. The popular Rare Breeds Tent will again showcase fine heritage animals.
Concessions and the Classic Amusements Midway along with continuous local entertainment on two stages are all part of the modern day Williamstown Fair. If crafts are to your liking, the Annex will feature local crafters selling their beautiful wares.
Ladies and gentlemen, the fair awaits.
