Welcome to Western Fair District!
Welcome to Western Fair District, a landmark meeting place for business, industry and consumers for more than 140 years.
Western Fair District is the largest multifaceted complex in London, Ontario and surrounding area. It is a year-round entertainment destination that offers dining, horse racing, gaming, sporting events and leagues, comedy, music and live entertainment, a farmers’ market, trade and consumer shows and historic annual fall fair.
Western Fair District encompasses 85 acres of facility, parking and green spaces within the Old East Village neighbourhood in central London. The District is close to the London International airport and only minutes from downtown London and the Greyhound bus and Via Rail stations.
Affectionately known as the Forest City, London is vibrant, bustling municipality with warm, friendly people who truly welcome visitors. London has a city population of 352,000 and more than 457,000 in our metropolitan area. London is conveniently located in the heart of southwestern Ontario and is bordered by highways 401, 402 and 7 (407). London is only a two-hour drive from Toronto and Buffalo to the east, and Windsor and Detroit to the west.
