What’s Up Wednesday: September 3rd

September 3, 2014 by

This week the kids are heading back to school, families are settling into their regular routines, and the pace is picking up at the Metcalfe Fairgrounds!

Just 4 weeks from tonight the Fairgrounds will be bustling with activity as the final touches are added for a great 2014 Metcalfe Fair!

Don't Delay - Enter Today!

Metcalfe Fair, like most agricultural Fairs in Ontario, offers everyone a chance to showcase the talents of its exhibitors.

Those talents might lie in raising beef or dairy cattle; showing horses; growing field crops, vegetables or flowers; baking or canning; or needlework and crafts. There's a class for just about every specialty at the Metcalfe Fair!

We invite you to browse through our Prize List to discover all the classes that we have to offer.

Entering is easy. You can download a Livestock entry form or a General entry form, fill it in, and deliver it or send it to the Fair office. Or you can enter online.

Please note that the entry deadlines for livestock shows is Tuesday, September 16th. For exhibits in the Family Division or Agricultural Hall, the entry deadline is Monday, September 22nd.

We'd love to have you participate in our Fair as an exhibitor!
