London’s historic Western Fair comes to life for 10-days, September 8-17th. In the year that Canada celebrates its 150th birthday, a month where families return to back-to-school basics, summer wanes and leaves begin to turn; young and young at heart look for one more chance to make memories with family and friends, celebrate their community, see something new and revisit traditions.

This year’s Western Fair will bring London over 50 rides, fair food, more than 800 animals, rodeo, entertainment and attractions. Endeavoring to make memories happen for fair patrons in Canada’s sesquicentennial year, the fall classic welcomes the return of some fan favourites: concerts, demolition derby in the iconic grandstand, Modern Square Dancing Demonstrations, 50% off Ride All Day Bracelets (on site only) on the final Sunday September 17th, 2-for-1 Admission Days, Bounce Back coupons and an expanded focus on local food, farming and animals.

Here’s what awaits:

 

 

DEMOLITION DERBY, FMX and HIGH DIVE 

The Grandstand welcomes home Fair fan favourite, the Demolition Derby, free with admission! The Demo Derby will take over the Grandstand on the final Sunday, full of heart-pumping action as competitors race to take the top spot in Figure 8 heats and full-size straight stock demolition. Be the last car standing! 

Leading up to the adrenaline-fueled excitement of the Derby is FMX freestyle motorcross! Watch as former X-Games freestyle rider Ben Milot and others compete with unbelievable stunts as they fly through the air from ramp to ramp September 15th and 16th in the Grandstand! 

Also taking flight…the ‘Flying Fools’ will splash and surprise viewers with their high dive performances that will take your breath away. The acrobatic divers jump from heights up to 25 meters and will leave you breathless. 

 

CONCERTS

For four fantastic evenings during the fair the Metroland Media Agriplex Arena transforms into an intimate and interactive live concert venue welcoming some of today’s top acts from country, pop and rock. 

Kicking things off on opening day is Canadian alternative rock group 54•40 who will wow the crowds with an unbelievable set-list of hit songs. 

Also coming to this year’s Fair is country duo LOCASH who’s hit single “I Love this Life” topped country billboard charts at number 2! The duo have enjoyed hit singles, sold out concert appearances as two of Nashville’s fastest rising singer-songwriters. LOCASH will hit the stage September 12th. 

Two more country artists will keep the party going September 13th with country music singer, songwriter Cam and her country-pop sound and breakout hit single “Burning House.” Alongside Cam on the 13th will be Madeline Merlo, best known for her hit singles “Over and Over” and “Whatcha Wanna Do About It.” 

Rounding things out will be hit maker Andy Grammer. The vocalist has been keeping hits coming since his debut album in 2011 and recently with hit single “Honey I’m Good” continues to climbing the charts to number 9. 

 

DOWN ON THE FARM 

Don’t miss the expanded Down on the Farm attraction, demonstrations and entertainment. With over 800 animals at the Fair over 10 days, there will be no shortage of farm life in the city. 

In the Metroland Media Agriplex and Queens Park, find and share some farmer’s wisdom, Cowboy Fred’s C-More Country Corral, kiddie tractor pulls, daily horse-shoeing, sheep shearing, cow milking, dairy and beef breed displays, swine and poultry, sulky rides, plus rural and rustic, farm and food related exhibitors. 

Not to mention opening weekend’s Rawhide Rodeo where you can see the real deal as professional rodeo competitors go flat out against their rivals with live bull-riding at the World Champion level. You can also take in future rodeo stars as they compete in the high school rodeo. The Western Horse Show takes over the area as high-powered horses and riders compete in Western Pleasure and Speed events on the final weekend of the fair. 

 

FAMILY FUN 

In addition to all the animals, and excitement of the rodeo, demo derby, FMX competition and high dive we also have the kids’ favourite characters coming to the Fair. Meet and greet with Don, Leo, Mike and Raph of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles; the Hatchimals; your favourite friends from Paw Patrol, Skye and Rubble, or join the madcap, magical adventures with Shimmer and Shine.

Don’t miss the Creative Arts Competition Displays in the Canada Building, chuck full of crafts, art, baking, photography, flowers and more. 

The Park Stage will come to life with the Rise2Fame competition and final showcase of the best and brightest between the ages of 6 and 21 as they sing, dance and play their way to win. Additionally, the Fiddle and Step competition along with other local talent is sure keep people of all ages entertained.
