The Harrow Fair
September 1 @ 9:00 AM – September 4 @ 5:00 PM
Our Colchester South and Harrow Agricultural Society Fair has become a favorite end of summer event for Essex County and beyond. It is a chance for ‘the locals’ to visit with their neighbours, for grown children to come home to visit with family and catch up with friends, and for grandmas and grandpas to show their grandchildren what living in rural Essex County is all about. It also gives those ‘city folk’ a chance to show their children where that glass of milk or those ingredients for their morning bagel really come from.
The Harrow Fair is one of the most successful fairs in our area. We are a member of the Ontario Association of Agricultural Societies, District 9. The Fair is held over four days on Labour Day Weekend but it requires weeks of preparation before our gates are even opened. All this is accomplished by innumerable volunteers and several community groups. The most important part of the Fair however, are the people who participate and attend. Without the community in attendance, it wouldn’t truly be a community event.
