West Niagara Agricultural Society (WNAS), Host of the West Niagara Fair
The WEST NIAGARA AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY was formed in 2012 through the amalgamation of the former Lincoln Agricultural Society (LAS) and Smithville Agricultural Society (SAS). These non-profit organizations had each operated for over 150 years in the Lincoln and West Lincoln communities. After the sale of land owned by LAS in downtown Beamsville, it was decided that joining the two societies at a new central, rural location in Grassie (West Lincoln) with a new facility, would make a stronger organization. On a 95 acre parcel of land at the corner of Mud Street and Grimsby Mountain Road, the new WEST NIAGARA AGRICULTURAL CENTRE AND FAIRGROUNDS opened its doors in 2015 and has been going strong ever since.
The objects of an agricultural society are to encourage an awareness of agriculture and to promote improvements in the quality of life of persons living in an agricultural community.
