On behalf of the Fall Fair Board, I would like to welcome you to the 161st annual Harriston-Minto Fall Fair. The theme this year is “Flannel Shirts & Denim Skirts”.

I would like to encourage all of you to come out and explore what the fair has to offer, including the always popular Demolition Derby and Soap Box Derby, as well as the Agricultural Awareness Barn, and the children’s area. I look forward to seeing the homemade goods exhibited in the Homecraft section each year, by youth and adults alike. It’s always fun to see how different people interpret the theme in their creations.

The Fair we present to you from Friday afternoon to closing on Sunday night has been prepared and organized by the volunteer membership of the Harriston-Minto Agricultural Society who have put in many long hours to make this event a success. I would like to thank all our members and their families for their hard work. We would also like to acknowledge our many partners in the community for their financial contributions which aids in our aim to make the Fair a success.

If you are interested in volunteering at the fair, please contact any of the directors, as we would be more than happy to have you on the team. I’m looking forward to seeing all of you at the fair.
