Welcome to the 153nd annual Wallacetown Fair, a fun filled traditional event taking place in the village of Wallacetown, Ontario. This is a small community in southwestern Ontario, on Lake Erie's northern shore, in the heart of the Talbot Settlement, our heritage.
The 2013 Theme is "Bits, Boots and Broncs" which promises to be a fun-filled event! Some of the highlights featured each year are the outdoor displays of antique tractors, classic cars and trucks, motorcycles, old agricultural machinery and gas engines. To learn more, watch the slide show below.
And the regular favourites are back! The tractor pullers from the Ontario Mini Rod Pullers Association will be creating their usual excitement. The enthusiastic demolition derby amateurs will amaze everyone in the stands with their determination to wreck every vehicle in the field! Of course a big draw at any fair is the mysterious and exciting carnival show. The ever favourite Midway By Carter Shows returns this year to dazzle and excite those brave enough to face the challenging midway rides and try their luck at winning enticing prizes at the colourful booths that help make up this fun filled carnival!
Fall fairs cannot be complete without having a focus on the agricultural heritage we enjoy to this day. The Wallacetown Fair is uniquely "country". It promotes an awareness of agriculture and of the products of a rural society.
So come out to see what our people are so proud to do - producing their own food and raising their own livestock. We enjoy competing with our neighbours over who can bake the best apple pie, raise the best lamb and beef cattle, or ride the best show horse.
