The Orangeville Agricultural Society is nearing their 161st anniversary! While the surrounding area has become more urban, everyone still appreciates the tradition of rural roots.
A dedicated group of members and volunteers come together to present the annual tradition of the fair and, it is still the largest single community event which encompasses attractions for all ages of the community.
The Orangeville Agricultural Society is a non profit organization whose overall purpose is to serve and participate in the interests and needs of the community and to promote agriculture. Our main showcase is our annual Fall Fair. Fairs are, and have been a part of rural Canada for many years. This meeting place provided for the community, invites people to visit each other and to rediscover their heritage and community of yesterday and today.
The goal of the Orangeville Agricultural Society is to present agriculture in a manner that is both educational and entertaining to all ages of fair-goers. The competitive element embraced for many years in exhibiting is retained. This makes the fair meaningful to everyone and ensures that top quality products and livestock are showcased. The country fair continues to improve the quality of life in Ontario, and is an aspect of our community as important as any other function.
