|The Metcalfe Fair is an annual agricultural fair held in Metcalfe Ontario, a town located about 15 miles south of Ottawa, Ontario, the Capital City of Canada. This fair has been held in the fall of each year since 1856.
It first began in the communities south and east of the newly founded town of Ottawa in the Province of Canada, eleven years before Canadian Confederation. That was before the American Civil War, and before Abraham Lincoln became President of the United States.
The County of Russell Agricultural Society was formed in 1856 for the purpose of presenting an Agricultural Fair in September. Originally intended to rotate annually in the Townships of Gloucester, Osgoode, Russell, and Cumberland, the fair found a permanent home in the Village of Metcalfe in 1861. In 1912, the year the Titanic sank, the County of Russell Agricultural Society changed its name to the Metcalfe Agricultural Society.
Today, Metcalfe Fair is a thriving major agricultural fair in Eastern Ontario.
