Celebrating 160 Years of Tradition

People have come to the Beachburg Fair for 160 years for many different reasons; from competitions, to reunions with family and friends, for good homegrown fun. Although the events and entertainment change, the heart of the fair beats strongly the same.

Competitions have been a key part of the fair traditions since day one. Think of your own memories of school fair, 4-H, baking , and crafts or livestock entries. The excitement of coming to the fair to see who will get a ribbon or a win continues today!

Events and entertainment for all ages create so many opportunities for fun with families and friends, Many consider the fair our homecoming and the chance to visit with neighbours and friends old and new. Many hugs and laughs are shared.

Of course the fun and food add to the atmosphere. From the classic fair booth burgers, to the chicken BBQ’s and sweet treats on the midway, everyone enjoys fair food treats!

We can all take pride that community leaders in our own backyard came together to create our fair a full 10 years before Canada itself was a country. And now with thanks to the many hard working volunteers who continue to help make it happen, take this year to step back and reflect on your favourite reasons for coming to the Fair. Recreate some old fun and reunions or create some new traditions and memories.
