Forestry, Fishing, and Fields
On behalf of the Board of Directors, Convenors, Member and Volunteers I would like to welcome you to our 162nd Community Fair in Bayfield. We are blessed once again to host a traditional fair celebrating the achievements and success of our rural community in one of the most picturesque communities situated along Ontario’s west coast.
Our unique location gives us a great cross section of creative talents and agricultural production, especially given our location on the shores of Lake Huron. Our theme of ‘Forestry, Fishing and Fields’ will help to highlight some of these great Bayfield area attributes, and no doubt it will give creative inspirations that inspire all residents and visitors as they create beautiful entries in the many categories offered this year.
We are fortunate to have an extensive group of volunteers throughout the year and the fair weekend who allow us to present an extensive weekend filled with a blend of traditional competition, entertainment for the young and young at heart, a parade through the downtown and animal competitions that are truly shows that captivate those watching.
I hope you enjoy everything we have worked on this year, and continue your loyal support of this great organization in the years ahead.
Jentje Steenbeek, Fair President
