About The Erin Fall Fair

Organized by the Erin Agricultural Society, the Erin Agricultural Fair is held every Autumn over the Thanksgiving Weekend. This year will mark it’s 172nd year! It’s a popular event for both the residents of Erin as well as those from surrounding communities throughout Wellington, Caledon, and Dufferin Counties. Visitors travel many kms to attend the fall fair, including from Orangeville, Guelph, Brampton, Guelph, Acton, Halton Hills, Georgetown and more.

It’s a fantastic event for people of all ages including families and features entertainment, agricultural events and competitions, and even a Midway.

The goal of the Erin Agricultural Society in holding their fall fair “is to create awareness and to foster education about agriculture, farming and country life.”

In the early days, the fair was often compared to the Canadian National Exhibition – sometimes referred to as a mini-version of the CNE. It has been a popular event for over a century.

Fair Opening – Thursday Afternoon

While officially the fair does not open until Friday, October 7th, 2022, the gates do open on Thursday at 5:00PM. From then until 11PM, all midway rides and admission is just a “Tooney” – or $2.00. Midway rides are provided by Robertson’s Amusements. Featured will be rides that will thrill the kiddies, rides for the family, and “Spectacular Rides” including those meant for the experience of speed, and their 65′ Century Wheel.

If midway rides aren’t your thing, you’ll enjoy the food and game concessions – try your skill and luck to win a great prize! Game concessions for all ages and skill levels.

Erin Fall Fair Official Opening – Friday

The official opening of the Erin Fall Fair takes place on Friday at 6:30PM, but the gates are open for you to wander around at 4:00PM. During this time, you can enjoy the Midway, and the Tractor Pull event which begins at 5:30PM.

At 7PM, the Ambassador Competition begins in the Exhibits Hall, while at the same time in the Festival Gardens, you can be entertained by the local and popular Country/Rock Band, Settlers Creek.

Thanksgiving Day – Monday At Erin Fall Fair

Monday is the last day of the fair and will feature an array of activities and events to check out. Have you ever attended a “Poultry Show?” Well, if you haven’t, you might be amazed at what you’ll find, and this starts early at 9AM with the Mimosa 4H Club. In the morning, you can also take in a “Goat Gaggle” as well as the Open Horse Show.

Be sure to check out the Erin District High School (EDHS) band at 11:00AM in the Exhibits Hall. You’ll be watching the up and coming young musicians of Erin and giving them your support and encouragement!

The final afternoon of the fair will feature a Children’s Cookie Decorating event, as well as something everyone wants to see: The Demolition Derby! That will be taking place at 1:00PM at the Track.

Everything begins to wind down as the 4:30PM closing time approaches, but with two important events taking place just before:

  • Presentation of Special Awards (Outdoor Stage) 4:00PM
  • 50/50 Lottery Draw (Outdoor Stage) 4:15PM

Headwaters Home Improvement Centre Involvement

We love the community of Erin, and it’s an honour for us to serve the area and to get involved in the community!

The Erin Fall Fair is no exception – it’s a great weekend for the community to all come together, learn about what our local but rural farmers are doing, and inviting those from outside the community to come and check out Erin and what it has to offer. Most of us are friendly and happy to see people from other places coming to visit and the Erin Fall Fair is a great reason to come and visit us.

So our involvement with the fair is through a partnership at the Community Builder level, the highest partnership level available.

But we think it’s worth it to give back to our community and to be involved as much as possible!

Please note that event times and names may change – please see the official schedule at the Erin Fall Fair website.
