On behalf of the General Manager, Board of Directors, Committee Members and Volunteers, I wish to extend a warm greeting to everyone and welcome you to our 161st Renfrew Fair.

A sincere thank you to local businesses, sponsors and donors, who without their support, this community event could not take place.

I extend thanks to the members, exhibitors, committee persons, staff and directors for their inspiration and dedication.

Let us all gather at “The Greatest Fair In The Ottawa Valley”, to renew acquaintances, celebrate the past and embrace the future.

Welcome to the Renfrew Fair.

Our Homecraft Directors start work as soon as one fair is over to prepare for the next year, reviewing and updating various categories for you to exhibit in.  Thank you to all our directors and volunteers for the hours they give not only at the fair but also throughout the year.  The fair would not be possible without all our volunteers.
