“It’s hard to imag­ine how the com­mu­nity and fair must have changed since 1844. Some things never change, the sup­port of the peo­ple of the area have made this fair one of the best in On­tario!”

That is the mes­sage from Van­kleek Hill Agri­cul­tural So­ci­ety pres­i­dent Jeff LeRoy as the or­ga­ni­za­tion pre­pares to cel­e­brate the 175th an­niver­sary of the Van­kleek Hill Fair.

“It is an honour to work with all the vol­un­teers, di­rec­tors and spon­sors who make this an­nual event pos­si­ble and look­ing for­ward to many more years,” says Mr. LeRoy.

“Cel­e­brat­ing 175 Years of Farm to Plate” is the theme of the event which takes place Au­gust 15 through 18.

Kick­ing off Au­gust 15, open­ing day in­cludes hall en­try judg­ing, a pa­rade and a com­bine de­mo­li­tion derby.

Fri­day’s pro­gram in­cludes a horse pull com­pe­ti­tion and Western horse games.

Satur­day’s busy sched­ule fea­tures live­stock classes, a chil­dren’s trac­tor pull and de­mo­li­tion derby.

The fair wraps up Sun­day with a horse shows, an an­tique trac­tor pull and Fu­ture Farm­ers Olympics.

Through­out the ex­hi­bi­tion, there will be a mid­way, pet­ting zoo, pony rides, ma­chin­ery dis­plays and a wide range of mu­sic.
