The Fairgrounds is a busy place every month all year round! 

Weddings, reunions, meetings, banquets, etc are taking place in the Community Hall, and exciting events and competitions are almost every weekend in the Livestock and Richardson Buildings and Lowden Pavillion. Our Derby and Pull areas are also booked for lots of summer fun entertainment!  Many events are free (or a nominal charge) and the public can just drop in and experience the activities taking place.

For example a couple of those fun, family events is flyball and the mini-horses.
It’s pretty noisy when Flyball comes to the Fairgrounds and pretty exciting especially to the dogs. Flyball races match two teams of four dogs each, racing side-by-side over a 51 foot long course. Each dog must run in relay fashion down the jumps, trigger a flyball box, releasing the ball, retrieve the ball, and return over the jumps. The next dog is released to run the course but can't cross the start/finish line until the previous dog has returned over all 4 jumps and reached the start/finish line. The first team to have all 4 dogs finish the course without. They will be there for a few weekends this summer. 
The Summer Classic" The Ontario Small Equine Show Association is a non-profit organization created to sustain and grow the Miniature Horse and Shetland Pony community within Ontario. Shows are open to the public.  There also Alpaca shows, fundraisers, square dancing, and so much more.

A calendar of all events can be found on the website at:  +Events at West Niagara Fairgrounds   Also if you wish to rent the facility or any of the buildings on the facility please just contact our office.


The Agricultural Society is always looking for more volunteers. “We appreciate the dedicated volunteers who help us with our on-going projects, at our fair and who sit on our Board of Directors and committees. Without the help of these volunteers, we would not be able to offer the programs, events and the facility for the good of the community. We encourage people of all ages and abilities to contact us if interested in volunteering to be a member of the board or if they simply would like to volunteer their time to help at the Fair or other society sponsored community events.” 
“We encourage you to come and participate in events, rent our facilities and take part in all we have to offer!”
