Live music, shows, animals, demo derbies and all of the best from “down on the farm” will be waiting for you on the banks of the Grand River from September 25 to 28. The 142nd Annual Caledonia Fair is celebrating the international year of the family farm and the living heritage of our agricultural community.
This year’s fair boasts two stages of live music and entertainment, with local favorites Andre & the J-Tones, Mark Laforme, and Brett Baker, and new to the fair acts like Whiskey Epiphany and DB Cooper. Country, Rock, Indie, Jazz – whatever the genre, you’ll find it at the Caledonia Fair.
Entertaining on and off stage will be the incredible illusionist Lucas Wilson, the incomparable one man band Bandaloni, and Clarol the clown. Enjoy the Ultimutts dog show, Classic Championship Wrestling, or one of two demolition derbies.
At the fair you can meet your local farmers, watch one of the livestock shows, see displays about local farms and farm families throughout the grounds, visit the petting farm in the cattle barn, and check out Squire McKinnon’s horse barn for more close encounters of the animal kind.
The fair also plays host to two free children’s’ areas. The KIDZone features lots of great free outdoor play and crafts, while the secret garden in the Exhibition Hall is a special place where kids can let their creativity run wild. And while in the Exhibition Hall, be sure to explore all the crafts, crops, canning and culinary creativity showcasing the best of Haldimand and surrounding areas.
No fair would be complete without rides, food and shopping, and the Caledonia Fair has plenty of those too. A World’s Finest Shows midway is waiting with rides and games to thrill, while vendors will be displaying their wares, and you are sure to find whatever food you fancy.
Make the Caledonia fall fair the fair of your memories. Full entertainment details and dates are online at www.caledoniafair.ca.
