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.

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.

Tons of parking. I was there for a fabulous craft show. Merritt Hall is well maintained and always clean.

Nice place for multiple reasons. Been here as exhibitor of the bridal show and visitor for fairs. Easy access from highway.

Came here for the food drive. The place is a great space for events and really well done facilities. The paved parking lot is a nice feature too and it's located very conveniently. Would be a great place to rent out for large groups. Haven't been to any other event here yet.
