2019 Fair Dates: August 15 - 18

Presidents Message

Hello,

The Mountain Township Agricultural Society is pleased to welcome everyone to our 127th Annual South Mountain Fair. As the current President, I am so excited for you to join us for a fun-filled weekend of agricultural events, entertainment, rides, and delicious food.

The South Mountain Fair continues to grow and improve with each year that passes.  We are pleased to see the delighted faces of our community children as they play in the Children’s Entertainment Tent or experience the midway. We take pride in the growth of the 4-H, beef, horse and poultry exhibits and competitions that draw crowds from across Eastern Ontario. There will be something for everyone within the Lila Fawcett building with all the eye-catching exhibits. The entertainment we have lined up will have our White Top Tent buzzing with music and social gatherings.

Sponsors are a huge part in why our Fair continues to grow and have success. Without them, we could not achieve the weekend we have planned for our community. Thank you so much for continuing to be such an important part of this tradition year after year.

We would also like to thank our dedicated patrons. Without your continued support, year after year, we would not be known as “A Fair to Remember”. We enjoy seeing all the children and your familiar faces walking the Fairgrounds each year.  On Fair weekend we feel the depth and support of our entire community.

Our children today will be our leaders tomorrow and we look forward to our future generations taking part in this wonderful tradition. Today, as board members, it is our responsibility to attract young people to join our committees and become future board members and leaders.

I would like to send out a sincere Thank You to all my fellow Mountain Township Agricultural Society board members. Each and every one of you went above and beyond to ensure that the 127th Annual South Mountain is the best one it can be. And we could not have been the strong Board we are without the numerous volunteers and committees behind the scenes. The entire Board thanks you for your dedication and commitment.

I hope you all have an amazing Fair Weekend with your family and friends. Please do not hesitate to come up and say Hi. After all, the best part of the Fair is experiencing it with each and every one of you!

Respectfully,

 

Dermid O’Farrell
