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.

Perfect day for the fair, had shows to watch, vendors to grab all sorts of food from, a small section of rides in the back for kids to be entertained. They had farm animals you could see, judging of animals which was cool. It's a great way to spend the day with family and friends

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.

Went to the fair. Parking was fairly organized, had a tractor shuttle you upon arrival. Closer to the end of the evening, no shuttle? Very dark, massive open fields walking back to the parking lot(open field) while cars driving in all directions and people scattered all over trying to find their cars. Not good for families who stayed with small children. Huge safety concern. They may have there reason for no shuttle later in the evening but after they have your money, I think they should take a little care for your safety off of the grounds! I am not afraid of a little exercise, create some walking paths with barriers, pylons… otherwise if you have smaller children leave earlier!!!! My kids were older and we had our lights on on our phones for fear of getting hit by reckless drivers leaving the parking lot!! I will not be staying later if I am forced back in the future.

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.
