Remembering Canadian Country Dreams
The Directors and members of the Bayfield Agricultural Society truly welcome you to our 161st fair. As Canada celebrates its sesquicentennial, we reflect upon what makes our country unique. One annual event taking place across this country is the celebration of our rural community through the local fair. This event highlights rural traditions and produce grown and raising our area.
The Bayfield Community Fair will be celebrating Canada’s 150th and the fair’s 161st anniversaries through fireworks, music, a parade, and food. Bayfield has a definite association with the lake and fishing and will have a canoe on site. It is surrounded by very productive farmland. Some of that produce will be seen in the children’s play bin, the grains exhibits, and the animals looked after by the 4-H clubs.
The handcraft, culinary arts, and flower exhibits are one of the largest in the area. They attract local exhibitors and those from a distance. Creativity is definitely present in the woodworking exhibits and the art and photography section. The children always amaze everyone with the creativity and effort that they put into what they bring.
A special thank you to all the volunteers who ensure the fair is a success. The Directors and Chairpersons deserve a special thanks for the leadership they provide and the commitment they make to the fair.
The list of activities and events will be updated on the website regularly, so keep current by visiting www.bayfieldfair.ca.
To celebrate this year, bring an exhibit, be in the parade, bring a friend, volunteer at one of the events, or tell someone of your favourite part. Do use the fair as a time to meet up with your family, friends, and neighbours and celebrate our rural community. Happy 161st and 150th.
