President’s Message 2022 marks our 185th Fergus Fall Fair! Please join us September 15, 16, 17 and 18th, this fall! Our dedicated and passionate team of volunteers – board members, committees and all volunteers have missed getting to prepare for fair weekend and all our related events throughout the year. Since 2020, we have explored different ways of connecting to help bridge the restrictions. We prepared YouTube videos in place of our fair in 2020, had a successful drive-thru breakfast in July 2021 in partnership with the Grand River Agricultural Society, a DIY craft fundraiser, a virtual fair and drive-thru Chicken Dinner on what would have been fair weekend, we joyfully returned to the Christmas parades in Dec to finish off 2021. We are busy planning for a traditional gathering on fair weekend 2022. We also have some fun new things to present! We are excited to once again enjoy in-person community, fun, celebration and education: • to appreciate our agricultural heritage • to provide a place to show our personal talents, hobbies and projects; baking; food harvests and preserving; plants; treasured antiques; display skills and so much more • to show gratitude and respect for our past, current and future farmers - local and beyond • to learn of the countless agriculture-related industries, professions and careers, some that you may not even realize are connected to the land • to showcase local producers and farmers with their pride in goods, foods, breeding and training of a wide variety of animals with open competitions and displays • to showcase 4-H learning and achievements in many areas including animals and crops, food security and preserving, crafts, talents, leadership, conservation, innovation, exchanges and so much more. • to listen and engage in entertainment and shows including the tractor and truck pulls, midway, music, dancers, dog show and sheep hearding demonstration - just to name a few • to acknowledge and show gratitude to our sponsors, businesses, families, individuals and grants that support our events and so many other public events in our amazing area of Ontario. Please watch for the information and tickets (advance ticket sales only) for our NEW Thursday evening music event. Come to enjoy Cara Smith and the Luke Rogerson Band on the fairgrounds (at the Centre Wellington Community Sportsplex).

Ambassador’s Message

Dillon Bernier 2019-2022 Fergus Fall Fair Ambassador I want to take this time to welcome everyone to the 185th Fergus Fall Fair! It has been a privilege to represent our community as the 2019-2022 Fergus Fall Fair Ambassador. I cannot believe how fast this incredible journey has gone. I am beyond thankful for all of the incredible opportunities I have had thus far as your Fair Ambassador. My role as the Fergus Fall Fair Ambassador has led me to learn so much more about Agriculture. I have been able to witness the enormous efforts the Agricultural community displays year after year to feed and provide for our community and beyond; especially during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Throughout my extended reign as the Fergus Fall Fair Ambassador, I have had the privilege of representing the Fergus Agricultural Society at many local and provincial events whether it be in person or virtually. I have also been able to form new friendships that will last a lifetime with many other Ambassadors who are representing their Agricultural Societies across Ontario. Our Fair would not be possible without the countless hours our many Volunteers, Sponsors, and Community members dedicate throughout the year to make our Fair a huge success. Our Fair demonstrates excellent core values by providing opportunities for all individuals in our community the chance to grow, be educated about Agriculture, and show their talents in baking, crafting, and homemade exhibits regardless of age, ability, or background. I am very proud to be a part of such an inclusive and accepting Agricultural Society. I am looking forward to seeing how we as not only a Fair, but also as a community, can continue to strive to welcome and accept new members this year, and years to come. I want to extend a huge thank you to the Fergus Agricultural Society for their endless support, dedication, and kindness you have given me over my extended reign as Ambassador; I appreciate each one of you. I admire the amount of work that you all do throughout the year to continue to make our Fair one of the best in the Province. Thank you from the bottom of my heart; this has been an outstanding experience! The Fergus Fall Fair is another year of tradition, and we are so excited to welcome you back to the Fairgrounds for our first Fair since 2019. Whether this is your 1st or your 51st, I am confident that you will make memories and learn things that will last you a lifetime! I certainly hope that you all can come out to this year’s Fair to experience Sunshine Showers and Fresh Cut Flowers with all of us! Sincerely,

Dillon Bernier
