President's Message

The Town of Perth celebrates 200 years this year, and the Perth & District Agricultural Society has the distinction of being around for 171 of those years. It is an exceptional feat and I am proud to be part of an organization that has endured and continues to evolve into the outstanding exhibition that we enjoy today. I invite you to visit the Homecraft Building as we celebrate our theme of "Rural Routes", Where You Came From - How You Got Here. You are sure to enjoy displays that showcase our rich agricultural heritage through hand crafted items, baked and bottled goods and horticultural displays.
As you enjoy the various shows and exhibits, please remember that this fair runs on the commitment of it's volunteers. A heartfelt "Thank You!" to the enthusiastic and dedicated Board of Directors, Committee Chairs and Committee Members. I offer my sincere thanks to all of our exhibitors: your talents and creativity are the life blood of the Perth Fair. I wish you the best of luck and hope you have a successful year of friendly competition.
By showcasing your talents at the Fair you keep agriculture alive in our community. Welcome to the Perth Fair - A tradition built on excellence for 171 Years. We couldn't do it without you!

About the Perth Fair

The Perth and District Agricultural Society was founded in 1845. Many things have changed over the years, including the name and location of the society. One thing that has remained is the dedicated volunteer base which has supported the organization over the years.

Did you know? - The Perth and District Agricultural Society is a non-profit organization that hosts the Perth Fair on Labour Day weekend in Perth, ON. The organization is made up of hundreds of volunteers who come together to present a balance between agricultural and entertainment events.

We continue to build upon tradition while embracing the future and look to bring the best possible Fair to the Perth Fairgrounds. Have you considered volunteering? Become a member of a strong volunteer based organization. Please contact us at volunteer@perthfair.com .
