2016 Ameliasburgh Fair

The weather was perfect for the 35th annual Ameliasburgh Fall Fair on Sept 24 & 25. The opening parade was a huge success, with bikes, tractors, old cars, horses, decorated wagons and themed floats. Steve Ferguson, Chair of the Milford Fair, was on hand to open the Fair; MP Neil Ellis, Tonya Smith (representing MPP Todd Smith). and Mayor Robert Quaiff also took part in the Opening Ceremonies. Evelyn Price, who has stepped down as Homecrafts Convenor after 15 years, received a Certificate of Appreciation and a gift certificate from Secretary Dan Dulmage.
Saturday’s events also included the Cattle Show and musical entertainment by Becky Elliott and Friends. There were many exhibits on display in the Homecraft, Art & Photography, Floral, Fruit & Vegetable, Woodworking, Youth and Small Animal divisions.
Sunday began bright and early with the Horse Show, and also included the Dog & Cat Show, musical entertainment by Abbie Chapman and by Grampa’s Goodtime Gang. RJ Smith the Balloon Dude and a petting zoo entertained children. Sunday afternoon wrapped up with the auction of winning baked goods and preserves with auctioneer Rick Kevan of Rock 107.

Special thanks go to the Prince Edward Auto Club, Roy Pennell for sourcing and running both Silent Auctions, the many volunteers for their hours of assistance, and the Ameliasburgh Recreation Committee for sponsoring the event.

    Do you have vendors that could participate/sell at your annual fair? Is there also a classic car show’n shine as well? I would be interested in bringing wares to sell if you have vendors do this sort of thing. I paint on antiques and collectibles, garden ornaments, etc. Thank you, Laura

      Yes, we have vendors in one of the buildings, where there are also exhibits and a silent auction. Cost for a table is $25 for the weekend. Most people set up on the Fri, Sept 21, in the afternoon or evening (the building is open until 8:00, after that judging occurs, so you could be there, as long ass you were quiet). The building is locked after judging is completed. Let me know via the contact form if you would like a table.
