Home of the 169th Ancaster Fair, September 19-22, 2019.
We also offer facility rentals for agricultural, equestrian, corporate and personal events.

The Capital Campaign is On!

Since the move to our location on Trinity Road in 2009, the Ancaster Agricultural Society has invested over $22 million in our existing infrastructure and are planning for long-term future growth with an additional $5 million investment in new facilities. The plan is to begin construction on the new Fairground Events Centre in the Fall of 2019 and to be completed by Summer 2020 in time to celebrate the Ancaster Agricultural Society’s 170th anniversary.
By adding a new 75,000 sq ft building to our existing 90,000 sq ft onsite facilities, our goal is to be the premier equestrian, livestock, tradeshow and event facility in Southern Ontario. As a society focused on agriculture, the new building will give us the opportunity to seek large agricultural events to encourage country to meet city.

Ancaster Fair was great this weekend. Kids love all the livestock. Demolition derby was fun but crowded. Could have used more seating.

Golden Horseshoe Western Dressage Club uses Ancaster Fairgrounds as its home base for our summer horse shows. The staff at AAS are friendly and easy to work with. The grounds boast great stall and barn facilities with ample electricity to accommodate our overnighters. There are water hydrants at each ring and in barns and arena. Wash rack in the arena and on the outside. We love how easy it is to get too. Even for our friends from afar.

Love the fairs and events they do. Lots of parking and space, it's not jammed in.

Nice grounds but we were there for a horse show. There was limited electrical hook ups for stalks and limited access to water both for drinking water in the barns and for bathing horses. We never did find any wash racks. Hamilton water in the summer is not the best and the fairgrounds are on Hamilton municipal water. Camping was limited too. Not the best fair grounds by a long shot. Good for city folk maybe but not livestock or rural folks.
