Home of the 170th Ancaster Fair, September 24-27, 2020.
We also offer facility rentals for agricultural, equestrian, corporate and personal events.

Ancaster Agricultural Society is following City of Hamilton and the Province of Ontario guidelines in facilitating “social distancing” throughout COVID-19.
During this period we continue to work to meet the needs of our membership, volunteers, vendors, and sponsors via phone, email, and video conference.
We wish health and safety to all during this time and endure to return as a safe venue for all once we have worked together to “plank the curve”.

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 2020 and to be completed by Summer 2021.
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.

Tony Bercowski – in the last week

Loved the spirit, the events, the whole country atmosphere and all the beautiful people and satisfying food. Greatest thrill was meeting and getting Fair Ambassador Sara Emick's autograph and photograph. #celebrity_bucks

I went to the Great Canadian Butter Tart Festival on Saturday. The festival itself had amazingly delicious Butter Tarts, my only complaint was the venue. The way it was set up was not very disabled friendly. The aisles were difficult to manoeuvre, and if I had been in a wheelchair rather than using my cane, it would have been almost impossible to enjoy the event.

Excellent indoor activity place during the cold season. The inflatables were really big and fun filled varieties for the kids to go crazy. My son went nonstop for over 2hrs and still wanted more.

Ill-prepared for the amount of attendees. No parking, Portolettes were filthy, empty of soap and paper and few and far between. No seats/not enough stands or spectator access for the demo derby. Some picnic tables/benches or something would be nice at the food trucks as opposed to nothing. Be prepared for huge lines leading to big disappointments. Nothing like it used to be when on Rymal rd. Sadly, never again.

We've been in craft shows here, wedding reception, auctions just to name a few. The main hall that is huge can be divided into ( I believe) 3 smaller rooms. If you have a venue no need to rent the whole hall. Bathrooms are large and well kept. In the front there's a lobby. Anytime we've been there because of it's size it had never felt crowded.
