On Saturday the 18th of September, The Rodney Fair will be having a Parade through Rodney at 11AM., We ask that anyone who wishes to participate in the parade start arriving at the Track on the Fairgrounds at 10AM to line up. Any Child 13 or younger who participates in the Parade will be given a Toonie as well as an entry to the Bike Draw, sponsored by The Natterack Brewing Company in West Lorne.
Immediately following the Parade, the Rodney Agricultural Society will be selling Lunch at the Rec Centre and there will be Live Music at the Fairgrounds for anyone who wishes to join us.

After much review, the Rodney Aldborough Agricultural Society has decided to cancel the 167th Rodney Fair for 2021.
Due to the current uncertainty of COVID-19 restrictions, gathering numbers, and vaccine distribution, we are unable to plan and host a traditional fair this year.
With the hope that small events are permitted in the fall, we will continue to plan other ways for our community to gather through a combination of live, virtual, and drive-thru events.
We will present details of our plans for these Rodney Fair activities in the coming months through our website rodneyfair.com and our Facebook page . Please make sure to follow us on Facebook to see all of our updates and the coming events we hope you will be excited to take part in.
Any questions or concerns can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org or by contacting any of the Rodney Fair board Directors.
Thank you for continuing to support your local Rodney Fair.
The Rodney Fair has teamed up with Cope Amusements to provide a pack of the staple treats every Fair goer craves.

*** Important Announcement **** After much consideration, the Rodney Aldborough Agricultural Society has made the very difficult decision for the 2020 Rodney Fair to be cancelled. Due to the current health concerns, economic instability, and the inability to gather in groups of more than five people currently, we are unable to plan and host a fair this year. This is the first time in the history of the Rodney Fair for it to be cancelled for the year. We are already looking forward to our 2021 Rodney Fair and are working to organize an amazing array of activities for everyone. In the event that small events are permitted in the fall, we hope to arrange an activity or fundraiser for our supporters. If you have donated towards an event or purchased an advertisement in the prize book, we can either hold your place for next year or you can contact the fair board to be reimbursed. We appreciate everyone who continues to contribute and support the Rodney Fair.
Any questions or concerns can be directed to email@example.com or by contacting any of the Rodney Fair board directors. Thank you for continuing to support your local Rodney Fair. We are excited to see you at the 2021 Rodney Fair!
Thank you to everyone in the community who supported the Fair this past weekend. The turnout was AMAZING and the feedback we have been receiving is really appreciated by members of the Fair Board.
Plans are underway for the 2019 Fair, so if you have any suggestions for events and entertainment, or would like to volunteer in some way, please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
