Celebrating the 163rd Beachburg Fair

In 1857 the Beachburg Fair was born. A place for local people to gather and share in the success of the fall harvest and the gathering of family and community neighbours.
Over the years it has grown and flourished into a grand spectacle of Community, Agriculture and down home fun! It has won many awards, prizes and mentions through the years, but last nights awards were spectacular!
The first ever 2020 MYFM Spirit Awards in Pembroke was a public nomination and vote on various people, businesses, food and events etc. And thanks to someone, Beachburg Fair was nominated for “Favourite Fair”. And Favourite Fair it graciously WON! The power of Community shone last night, the love and spirit of appreciation to the Beachburg Agricultural Society and the generations of hard work touched our hearts and made them swell with joy!
And it is all thanks to David Beach and the very first Board and John Supple for creating and facilitating the first fair in our community.
Thanks to the past and present generations of Board members, Volunteers, and  Community for their vision, support, hard work, sleepless nights and tireless days to create this place for Agriculture, Family, and Community; and for keeping a long history of tradition going for the next generations!
Thank You, and we hope our adage is true…. “We’ll see you at the Fair”.

 

Gracious Thanks from

The Beachburg Agricultural Society
