Always wash/sanitized hands after contacting any animal.

Rare Breed Display

As time marches on less popular breeds of farm animals that originally helped build Canada`s agricultural industry have been in decline in favour of those which are bred for larger production and faster reproduction.  Not to be forgotten, the Fair salutes these stalwart breeds with a special exhibit from Heritage Breeds Canada.

 

Hopefully `Massie`and `Fergie`, the gentle giant twin Ayshire Oxen will join us again.  Almost two tons of prime beef.

Osgoode Heritage Museum & Historical Society
On Bank Street, at the City`s south edge is the Osgoode Historical Museum.  Travel back to a day when horsepower was a horse and true innovation  was the mainstay of human progress.

Canada Agriculture and Food Museum Educational Demonstrations

Presented by the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum; 5 demos daily featuring "Busy as a Bee", "Grain Grinding" and "Helpful Critters"

Blacksmith Demonstration

Part blacksmith, part storyteller and part historian the Blacksmith invites as he works the red hot steel on the anvil, changing its form before your eyes...

The smell of soft coal smoke, the roar of the bellows and the steady rhythm of the hammer and anvil will transport you back into the past...

Join the Blacksmith as he stokes the forge, hammers the iron and resurrects the sights, smells and spirit of our pioneers.

Look for our Blacksmith all day long and...

"Hear the Anvil Ring!"

Sheep Shearing Demo

 

Watch as our mutton friends get heat relief at the hands of our expert sheep shearer.

 

See our sheep friends get their cool summer haircuts.  Two demos each Saturday and Sunday in the Agricultural Pavilion.

 

Chainsaw Wood Carving


Lumberjack chainsaw carving is an amazing art form that produces sculpture for the cottage or the front stoop.

 

Check out our carver as he reveals what the logs are hiding deep inside.

Heavy Draft Horse Pull Brute human power is always great to watch. Cheer your favourite contestant on. See real Horse Power as these majestic teams pull the stoneboat across the ring.

stronger than ever!

 

We look forward to

seeing you then!
