President’s Message – Alyson Hawken


Last year after the fair, I said WOW, what a great fair. Then, I thought, can we do it again??

The answer is YES !! We have put together an amazing fair for you again this year, our midway from last year, Cope Amusements is back and we have some new entertainment acts for you to enjoy. I know we have something for everyone to enjoy.

In order to give you the midway and the entertainment acts, we are constantly fundraising. Thank you for supporting us (and yourselves) in these efforts. This year we started off with our Big Buck & Outdoor Show, then our Taste of the Wild dinner/entertainment night, Rags to Riches FunDrive, Running on Empties bottle drive, Port Glasgow Fish Fry. At this time, we are hoping to put together a sign making night and a few other events to raise money for the Fair events. All this is in addition to the wonderful support from our sponsors and all the things the Municipality of West Elgin does for OUR fair.

Our attractions this year are the MIDWAY, Major League Circus Show, Farmers Daughter Show, FMX World Tour (a freestyle Motocross Show), Soper Creek Wildlife Detectives, as well as returning shows Demo Derby, Team Penning, and the Tractor Pull.

Don’t forget to check out the Sheep, Cattle and Baby shows, the parade, our fantastic displays and exhibits made by our exhibitors and our Ambassador competition. Our exhibitors and competitors put in a lot of work to prepare for the fair, they would love it if you checked out their work.

New this year is our first annual Run/Walk and Rodney’s small town version of Legoland Discovery Centre.

I am positive we are going to have a great fair, I am very excited and I hope to see you all at OUR fair.
