Fergus Fall Fair, an annual showcase of local agriculture, food, talent and rural fun is virtual for the first time ever and community members of all ages are invited to showcase their hobbies and talents in a new way.
Nearly 90 competitions selected for the virtual fair, include class categories of youth, culinary arts, handicraft, photography, fruit and vegetables, plants and flowers, poultry, and cattle.
The fair will showcase entries by posting videos for the public to view during the fair weekend.
The traditional Fergus Fall Fair celebrated its 183rd anniversary as the tenth oldest fair in Ontario in September 2019.
“Fair entries prepared by community members are an important part of a traditional fair. Even though we cannot gather and display physical exhibits on the fairgrounds this year, we still want to engage the community and offer a fun way for people to get involved.” – Tayler Black, Fergus Agricultural Society President.
