“Fair Time” – the greatest time of the year! This year will be our 162nd Renfrew Fair and on behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to welcome you to the fair.

This year is truly going to be a very exciting year as we welcome Carter Shows Ltd. as our new midway provider and they promise to surprise us all.

Once again, we will look forward to some of the best livestock in North America exhibiting at our fair. Our entertainment on all our stages will be exciting for young and old.

Please stop by the Exhibit Hall and check out our Homecraft Division and look at all the hard work that goes into these displays, plus our maple syrup division is the best in the Ottawa Valley.

On behalf of all the Directors, I would like to thank our sponsors and donors that support the Renfrew Fair.
