The New Hamburg Fall Fair was another huge success this year with over 9,000 in attendance.
The four-day event held on Sept 12-15, brought out families, young and old, eager to partake in one of the oldest consecutively run fairs in the province, celebrating 165 years this year.
For many, attending the fair year after year keeps their childhood memories alive. For others, it was their first time. Whatever the reason, the fair offered something for everyone.
The New Hamburg Fall Fair, organized by the Wilmot Agricultural Society, has been bringing the community together and celebrating agricultural awareness since the very beginning.
The Fair’s Education Day, hosted at Green Acre Farms in New Hamburg, saw 300 Grade 4 students from Wilmot Township experience first-hand, what farming is all about.
During the fair, people took in all sorts of activities including five different livestock shows, petting zoos, a midway and a vendor village which hosted over 60 exhibitors who showcased local talents, products and fares.
And for some old fashioned ‘smashin and crashin’, the demolition derby was something people did not want to miss.
Erin Brennerman was crowned as Fair Ambassador during the Ambassador Program and opening ceremonies and over 200 volunteers dedicated their time and talents in helping make the fair another memorable one.
The theme at this year’s fair was “plant it, grow it, show it.”
