About last year’s program

Welcome to the Western Fair’s Virtual School Ag-Tours during the 2020 Western Fair! The Western Fair Association annually provides thousands of local school children free agriculture tours during the Western Fair; however, with the recent cancellation of the physical fair due to pandemic, we have worked with industry partners to provide an excellent selection of online activities for our community and a robust virtual agri-food education offering for students. We are excited to share this valuable virtual package of agriculture education for teachers and their students to benefit from in the classroom or through online learning at home.

The Western Fair partnered with Growing Chefs Ontario, Farm & Food Care Ontario, Ontario Federation of Agriculture, Six by Sixteen, AgScape, Middlesex London Food Policy Council, and several of the Province’s top commodity groups; Ontario Fruit & Vegetable Growers Association, Grain Farmers of Ontario, Beef Farmers of Ontario, Dairy Farmers of Ontario and Egg Famers of Ontario to offer this free program for you to enjoy!

This year’s program will provide programming for two separate age groups: Ages 5-11 and 12-18. This will allow the communication and topics to be geared to the appropriate age. This will include interactive activities, resource take-aways, videos, and live Q&A. Be sure to participate in our fun V-POD bingo card for a chance to win a prize!
