As we prepare for back to school, don’t forget September is also fall fair season in Dufferin-Caledon.
Our local fairs are a great opportunity to highlight the many contributions agriculture makes to our community. This year there are five fall fairs (Orangeville, Bolton, Brampton, Grand Valley and Shelburne) held throughout Dufferin-Caledon, being organized by hardworking and dedicated volunteers.
The Orangeville Agricultural Society kicks off the first fall fair Labour Day weekend and will host the 163rd Orangeville fall fair, with this year’s theme being Bushels of Fun. The fair will be full of fun activities from the midway to livestock and baked goods prizes. Free buses are available from a variety of locations to the fairgrounds in Mono.
