Ambassador & Scholarship Program


Sara Emick, 2019 Ancaster Fair Ambassador

Hello everyone and welcome to the 169th Ancaster Fair, my name is Sara Emick and I am extremely honored to be the 2019 Ancaster Fair Ambassador.

This experience has allowed me to participate in a variety of events throughout the year in which I have been able to learn so much more about the values and integrity of the Ancaster Agricultural Society.

This years fair theme is “Family Ties and Homemade Pies”, a celebration of life long bonds and the sweetest of treats! The dedicated volunteers and generations of families that have participated in the fair have shown their passion, while demonstrating inclusion in a fun-filled environment.

The Ancaster Fair is a lot like a homemade pie. Homemade pies are perfect for a family. There is something for everyone, its warm and inviting, and pairs even better with a scoop or two of ice cream.

I am extremely excited to see what this years fair has to offer and looking forward to seeing everyone this year at the Ancaster Fair.
