THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO MADE THE 2012 FAIR SUCH A WONDERFUL SUCCESS. SEE YOU ALL NEXT YEAR!!!!
AND A FULL DAY WITH THE FAMOUS MILLARVILLE FARMERS' MARKET TOO!!
8:30 A.M. TO 4:30 P.M.
Dogs are not permitted at the Fair, aside from designated contests, or the Farmers' Market as per health regulations. Please leave your dog at home.
The Priddis & Millarville Fair, more than a century-old, is one of the last, great, traditional, old-time Agricultural Fairs in Canada.
Founded in 1907 and held every year since, the Fair today is a wondrous extravaganza for kids in particular, with a Kid's World, a petting zoo, big horses, small horses, hayrides, roping competitions and ribbons awarded in junior events ranging from photography to baking to 4-H. The day is a big one for adults as well, including a multitude of competition ribbons and a parade, not to mention a full day integrated with the famous Millarville Farmers' Market.
You see, coming out to the Fair is is only half the fun you COULD have. The other half lies in participating in the Fair, putting your best crafts, baking, grains and grasses and animals up for those all-important winning ribbons that are keepsakes forever.

In all, the Fair typically has about 4,000 bench entries and more than 6,000 in attendance. You might see things like a rooster-crowing competition, two horses named Nelly and Shelly making ice cream, a parade, a pie auction that fetched more than $200 in one case, a packed and energetic Kid's World, the fun and furry Petting Zoo and, of course, the Millarville Farmers' Market thrown in.
