President’s Message – Dan Balint

WE ARE BACK! – We hope you areas excited as we are to return to the Rodney Fair. This year will look slightly dif­ferent then previous years but we will have all of our Fair staples lined up and ready to go!

We begin our Friday with our focus on our midway rides by Cope Amusements and the Fair Ambassador show. Saturday will host the Parade, Scavenger Hunt, Team Penning, Farm Olympics and will finish off with the Tractor Pull and Beer Gar­den. Sunday will see the return of our Kids Fun Run and Adult Road Race, followed by Team Penning and the Cattle Show. The Baby show will take place after lunch then we will begin the Demolition Derby and Beer Garden!

Don’t forget to check out our fantastic displays and exhibits in the Recreation Center. 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.

Thank-you to all of our Sponsors, Supporters and Fair-goers. Without all of you, our fair would not be possible. We are especially grateful for the grants we have received this year from The Municipality of West Elgin, The County of Elgin and the Province of Ontario. Thank you to the Municipality of West Elgin for all that you do for our Fair, from closing the road for the Parade, to maintaining the grounds year round and helping us during the week leading up to the Fair.

I would like to thank all of our Board Members, Associate Directors and Volunteers. Your hard work, dedication and time spent does not go unnoticed.

I am excited to see all of you out at our Fair this year.                                         -Dan Balint, 2022 President
