The Milford Fall Fair

Canada's Best Little Country Fair -  Saturday September 18th, 2021

75 YEARS  !!!!

While the fair remains cancelled for this year due to Covid, the Fair Board nevertheless didn’t want to not let the 75th anniversary go by unnoticed.

So a few of us got together and complied a 4 page article on the fair. It covers the fair origins and both some of it’s older and more recent history. Look for the insert article when you pick up your copy of this month’s South Marysburgh Mirror.

We look forward to see you all next year.


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.
