On behalf of the Homecraft Division, I would like to welcome you back to the 167th Renfrew Fair. Due to the pandemic, the 2020 fair was cancelled and the 2021 fair was minimized. We are looking forward to the 2022 fair being “The Greatest Fair In The Ottawa Valley”.
A special thank you to all our Directors and volunteers for the many hours they give to the fair. Their time and ideas are much appreciated. The fair would not be possible without them.
Each year we are pleased to display the work of all our exhibitors. They show their talents in quilting, floriculture, baking, hobbies, crafts, photography, woodworking, art, bottled goods, junior fair, 4-H and agricultural products
We would like you to carefully read through this prize book and choose the items you would like to exhibit in any of the various categories. Encourage your friends and neighbours to exhibit. There is something for everyone!
We are looking forward to reacquainting everyone to our great Renfrew Fair!
