Hello Southwestern Ontario, Western Fair is calling community members from everywhere to be a part of our annual community celebration. Fall fairs are woven into Ontario’s community fabric and we would love for you to be a part of this special tradition. There are a ton of ways for community members to connect with the fair’s engaging atmosphere, and as we count down the days to this year’s event, we hope you will join in the fun and support a vibrant community tradition in a way that is meaningful for you. 

Fundraise for your Children’s School 

Western Fair is happy to launch our second year of our Fair Share School Fundraising Program. The program is an excellent opportunity for your school to raise funds while also giving families an opportunity to buy tickets to the Fair at the lowest prices available. For every Ticket or Super Pass sold your school can raise money for programming or equipment. Western Fair will donate $1 to your school for every General Admission ticket sold, and $2 for every Super Pass (admission plus ride all day bracelet). Find out more here.

Whether you choose to represent your community organization as one of WFA’s membership groups or prefer to help your fellow fair fans make the most of their day, volunteers are essential to making memorable moments for fairgoers. There are a few rewarding volunteer opportunities available to which you may offer your skills, time and talents in a way that positively affects the individuals we serve and your community.
