We are disappointed to share the news that the Western Fair has been cancelled for 2021.
The Western Fair District Agriplex remains the site of an LHSC field hospital and vaccination centre, and with the safety of our staff and community as the top priority, our Board and management realized we would not be able to produce the Western Fair the way in which we have been entrusted to do so by our community, and those that built it.
We are optimistic we will be able to welcome more visitors to our site this September and to bring you some of the traditional elements of the annual fair in a community celebration. The Creative Arts competition and Rise 2 Fame have been launched online again and planning is underway for the 2022 Fair which we hope to make one of our best ever!
