We want to thank everyone for their continued support of our Ancaster Fair and our Society.
For everything our members, sponsors, and fair goers have done for us in the past, everything you still do and will continue to do, we at the Ancaster Agricultural Society just want you to know how thankful we are, and we look forward to a prosperous future together.
Our Ancaster Agricultural Society Board of Directors has made motion to proceed with livestock shows and Homecraft exhibits with the grounds open to members, exhibitors, and families of exhibitors.
The Ancaster Fairgrounds will be closed to the general public September 25/26.
Attendees must be double vaccinated plus 14 days. The only exemptions are for unvaccinated people with medical exemptions and people under 12 years of age after December 31, 2021.
All attendees must adhere to mask by-law 20-155 and physical distancing.
Ancaster Fair will put our full focus on youth in agriculture and the roots of our fair.
Homecraft will have all exhibits on display in the Marritt Hall Emick Room with washroom facilities available in Marritt Hall.
Dairy and Beef shows will take place Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th in the Show Arena.
Sheep Show and Goat Show will take place Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th in the tent beside Donovan Building.
Saturday 25th we’ll host a Haflinger Show and Sunday 26th a Hunter Show and Canadian Horse demonstration.
Our Board has made this decision in response to proposed changes in COVID vaccination proof coming September 22, 2021 and after reviewing events that have taken place in recent weeks similar to our Ancaster Fair.
The lack of availability of vendors, including our long standing midway and man-power, weigh into this decision.
With the focus on youth, agriculture and Homecraft exhibits we will strive to make the very best of 2021 while planning for 2022 and our next 171 years.
Thank you to all of our Directors, members, volunteers, and staff who have made our society a place for education as we endeavour to enrich agriculture and community life in Ancaster.
Your contributions are great, your dedication recognized, and your presence appreciated.
