A Tractor Life for Me in 2023

On behalf of the Board of Directors, Convenors, Society Members, and Volunteers, I welcome you to the Bayfield Community Fair. 

This year, the Bayfield Agricultural Society is celebrating “A Tractor Life for Me in 2023” at the Fair.  The tractor is very much a symbol of the agricultural life in our community in the past as well as the present.  I look forward to seeing the children on pedal tractors in the mini tractor pull, the lawn tractor races, and the large tractors used in the agricultural businesses of yesteryear and today.

Please enjoy the many unique activities, events, competitions, demonstrations, vendors, displays, and educational displays offered for your pleasure.

Thank you to all of the supporters and volunteers who have so freely offered their time and expertise to ensure a fantastic experience for you.

I look forward to meeting you at the Fair.

Vicky Culbert, Fair President


Seventy-five years ago, a tractor was defined as “a vehicle driven by an internal-combustion engine, especially as used in agriculture” and “to draw implements, plow and harvest, and to furnish power for spraying and sawing.” The more things change, the more they stay the same, and that goes for fairs as well.

“A Tractor Life For Me in 2023” is the theme chosen to invite everyone back to the future in the rural community and the small urban centres amid it. Homecraft exhibits have always been the showcase for the lifestyle examples of creativity in fabric, food and flowers. This late summer opportunity to share a simpler time and space for families and friends to gather is our welcome to you. One hundred and sixty-seven years and still going strong! Come to the Fair and share!
