Uxbridge Fall Fair returns to Elgin Park this weekend


Published September 9, 2022 at 12:08 pm

The Uxbridge Fall Fair returns to its traditional weekend after Labour Day slot today with plenty of attractions for young and old.

The focus of this year’s fair is on the foundations of agricultural society – crops, crafts and traditional farm animals – but most of the crowd-pleasing events of the pre-pandemic days are also back, such as the Tractor Pull, the Demolition Derby and, of course, the midway.

There’s also a Cruise-in-Car Show, Homecraft and Junior Contests, Horse Pull, Light Horse and Heavy Horse shows, Bluegrass Fiddlers and local dancers and even an Enchanted Princess Party.

Farm Animals will be front and centre with goat, sheep and dairy cattle shows; there will be wildlife exhibits courtesy of Soper Creek Wildlife Rescue, as well as antique farm machinery and an illusionist to entertain the crowds.

The Uxbridge Fall Fair dates back to 1853, with the Uxbridge Agricultural Society forming in 1862.

The fair opens at 5 p.m. today with the final ride on the midway at 11 p.m. Saturday hours for the show are 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
