The Milford Fall Fair
Canada's Best Little Country Fair - Saturday September 18th, 2021
75 YEARS !!!!
UPDATE May 16, 2021 ... Well, CoViD is still with us and it remains unclear as to when it will be safe to run our beloved Fair, especially when you consider the number of families with younger kids in attendance.
So the Fair Board, after consultation with the Mayor and ward 9 councilor, have again reluctantly decided to defer the Fair for one more year.
However this is our 75th anniversary and we don't want to let that go by unnoticed.
So we will be celebrating virtually through the recently reborn South Marysburgh Mirror and other venues.
Stay tuned to this website and Facebook for details closer to the time.
Our Fair has a 75 years of wonderful history of celebrating the local community. Our archives are getting dusted off and we will be sharing some of that with you!
Milford Fall Fair since 1946!
The Milford Fall Fair has been running continuously since 1946 when it welcomed home returning soldiers from World War Two.
Since then the Milford Fall Fair has been run on the second Saturday of September as a community and family focused event on the Milford Fair Grounds (Mt. Tabor).
Food, exhibits, music, craft vendors, animals, contests, activities for all and our world famous parade are all part of the fun.
Come join us and see what makes our event feel unique.
Something For Everyone. Young, Old and Dogs!
Our World Famous Parade, that anyone can enter, starts at the former South Marysburgh school. Registration opens at 10 AM. The parade travels to the Fair grounds starting at 11 AM. Come see antique tractors and cars, floats, and themed entries. Of course there are always fire engines as well! You'll enjoy it!
