“Blossoms, Butterflies & Bees!” Nature’s hard-working pollinators are a fitting theme for the 166th Bayfield Community Fair, which will be held at the Bayfield Arena and Agricultural Park on Aug. 19-21. The Bayfield Agricultural Society (BAS) is excited to host a fully in-person fair experience for the first time in three long years!
The Bayfield Community Fair has something for everyone: fireworks, a midway, a parade, evening entertainment, as well as unique events for all ages, competitions, demonstrations, vendors, educational displays, and so much more. A complete schedule of events and the 2022 Fair Book is available now.
For those who have been expanding their culinary skills or exploring other creative endeavors, there will be plenty of opportunities to enter exhibits in the Homecraft show.
Over the past few years, some community members have taken an interest in making maple syrup and producing honey. The Fair offers a perfect opportunity to showcase these two products. This year, two new classes – Maple Syrup and Liquid Honey – have been added to the renamed section of Farm Products. There are three classes for maple syrup entries: Golden, Amber, and Dark. There are also three classes for the liquid honey entries: White, Golden, and Amber. The BAS encourages local producers, both amateur and seasoned, to compete for the best maple syrup and honey in this community.
An exciting addition to the Fair this year is a Poultry Show on Saturday, Aug. 20 featuring more than 100 categories. The exhibits will include large fowl, bantams, waterfowl, turkeys, pigeons, and a full section for junior exhibitors to enter. This is sure to be a hit with breeders and everyone attending the Fair, both young and old. More information on this special show will be available in the coming weeks.
