The cover artwork for the 2024 Fair Book was created by Isa Wigchers van Boheemen

We are delighted to announce that the print version of the 2024 Fair Book is now available for the Bayfield Community Fair, Aug 16-18. The Fair Book provides all of the information that exhibitors need to enter their exhibits in this year’s Fair. All exhibitors are encouraged to read the Fair Book carefully. It contains important information on entry rules and regulations, entry forms and deadlines, fees, special category requirements, judging criteria, prizes to be won, and much more.

Here in Bayfield, copies of the Fair Book can be picked up at the Bayfield Library, Bayfield Convenience Store, Huron Ridge Garden Centre, and the Bayfield Mews Community Centre. Copies can also be picked up in Goderich at the Goderich Library, Elizabeth’s Art Gallery, N Sew On Custom Embroidery, Peavey Mart, and Art’s Landscaping as well as craft/quilt shops, garden centres, and libraries in Blyth, Clinton, Exeter, Hensall, Seaforth, and Zurich.

For those exhibitors who prefer to remain paperless, our website offers an online version of the 2024 Fair Book. To enter online, exhibitors can use the access link on our Online Entry Submission page.

The artwork on the cover of the 2024 Fair Book was last year’s winning Bayfield Fair Poster in the Junior category (K-Gr. 4), created by Isa Wigchers van Boheemen. Isa’s colourful poster advanced to the Ontario Association of Agricultural Societies (OAAS) District 8 level of competition where it won 2nd place at last fall’s District 8 AGM. Fair organizers are always amazed at how creative the Fair Poster entries are each year.

There is no end of talent and skills in this community. Several first-time exhibitors at the 2023 Fair surprised themselves by going home with ribbons and prize winnings. Fair organizers are issuing a challenge to everyone in the community to show their community spirit by entering at least one exhibit in this year’s Fair!

Be a Part of the Fair!
