2023 President’s Message

I’m thrilled to announce that this year’s fair will kick off Friday night with the much-anticipated “Harmony and Hops Festival.” Our stage will be graced with talented local musicians who will fill the air with live music. And for those with an appreciation for craftsmanship, we’ve collaborated with local breweries and distilleries to offer a diverse selection of hops and barley-inspired delights.

But that’s not all – get ready for the adrenaline-pumping action of the Tractor Pull on Saturday night. As the engines roar and the tires grip the earth, we’ll witness the strength and skill of our pullers as they aim for a full pull.

And speaking of high-octane excitement, I am thrilled to share that the “Demolition Derby” will make a triumphant return to The Rodney Fair on Sunday this year. Buckle up and watch as drivers navigate the chaos and carnage, transforming old vehicles into metal masterpieces of destruction.

Thank-you to all of our Sponsors this year. Without all of the generosity in our community, our fair would not be possible. A special thank-you is deserved for the Municipality of West Elgin, The County of Elgin and the Province of Ontario for their financial support!

Lastly, I would like to thank all of our Board Members, Associate Directors and Volunteers. We have all worked very hard to bring you a full weekend of entertainment, see you at our Fair!

Dan Balint, 2023 President
