After much deliberation and with deep regret the Aberfoyle Agricultural Society has decided to postpone the 180th fall fair until September 10-11 2021.
The physical and mental, and financial health of the people who support our Fair – members, exhibitors, vendors, sponsors, volunteers fair attendees etc. – is our number one concern.
Since 1840 without a postponement until this year The Society has worked to increase the awareness of, and to improve the quality of agriculture, home crafts, and the rural lifestyle, by presenting an annual Fall Fair to exhibit livestock, produce, home crafts, pets and equipment. It also assists in 4H and Junior Garden Club activities.
One of Puslinch’s first community organizations, the Society played a large part in the education and development of agriculture, home life, and nutrition at a time when 80% of the population was involved directly in agriculture and rural life. Today, even though our agricultural and rural communities are decreasing, the Society still has a strong grass roots base and supports the rural way of life.
Stay tuned we are looking to see if there is something we can do to kept the Fair in your minds in 2020 and keep you actively involved during this one moment in time.
