Rebekah Passow- 2024 Ancaster Fair Ambassador

Hello and welcome to the 174th Ancaster Fair. My name is Rebekah Passow, and I am
honoured to represent the Ancaster Agricultural Society as the 2024 Ancaster Fair
I have attended the Ancaster Fair as an exhibitor and visitor from a very young age, and my
earliest memories were made at the fair’s former location. This year’s fair theme is “Rooted
in Progress”. The world we live in is constantly changing, with some very major changes in
the agriculture sector over the years. The fair has embraced this progress, while still
preserving the agricultural roots that it was founded on. This past February I was able to
attend the OAAS Convention, where I met other ambassadors and fair members from across
Ontario who all share the same values of preserving our agricultural roots while moving
Thank you to all the members and volunteers who work tirelessly to prepare the grounds for
our fair weekend, and keep it running smoothly.
I encourage everyone to come to the fair and enjoy all that it has to offer, and I am looking
forward to meeting new friends and making many new memories. Thank you.
