The Wil­liamstown Fair re­turns Au­gust 10 to 13, as the St. Lawrence Val­ley Agri­cul­tural So­ci­ety presents the 206th edi­tion of the old­est agri­cul­tural ex­hi­bi­tion in Canada.

Dat­ing back to 1812, the fair con­tin­ues to be one of the high­lights of the Sum­mer.

“A her­itage fair with a fam­ily friendly at­mos­phere,” the event kicks off to­mor­row (Au­gust 10) at 6 p.m. when the County Lads band will per­form and a horse show will be held.

Through­out the week­end, there will be chili, cat­tle, cos­tumes, trac­tor-pulling, horse, cow­boy, tal­ent and baby con­tests, dis­plays, demon­stra­tions, vol­ley­ball and lip sync.

Next week, Au­gust 17 to 20, the Van­kleek Hill Agri­cul­tural So­ci­ety hosts its 173rd edi­tion, with the theme “Cel­e­brat­ing The Past 150 Years – Em­brac­ing the Fu­ture.”

The pro­gram in­cludes cat­tle and horse shows, the flower and home craft dis­plays. The Satur­day night de­mo­li­tion derby is al­ways a high­light of the fair. How­ever, in re­cent years, a com­bine de­mo­li­tion derby has proven to be an­other crowd favourite.

The full pro­grams for both fairs can be found in­side this pa­per.
