The WEST NIAGARA FAIR - annually the weekend after Labour Day

Our Board made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 and 2021 West Niagara Fairs due to Covid19 pandemic restrictions in place and concerns our Board felt for the safety of our volunteers and attendees.

We are now starting the planning process for the 2022 West Niagara Fair. This will be a challenge! How will a rural "Fair" look after the unprecedented events of the past 21 months? What lessons have we learned and how can we adapt to some mindset changes that will result from the pandemic? 

We are asking  for YOUR input on how you feel we should and could make changes!

A small Bit of History!

The West Niagara Fair is the result of the amalgamation of the former Smithville Fair and Lincoln County Fair, with over 300 years of history between them.

As always, the fair is an exciting annual event, hosted by the West Niagara Agricultural Society (WNAS), that takes place on the weekend after Labour Day and is held at our newly built, West Niagara Agricultural Centre & Fairgrounds on the corner of Mud and Grimsby Mountain roads, in Grassie, Ontario (a little place nestled between towns of Grimsby and Smithville).

As it was done for the past 150 years; the WNAS carries on the historic tradition of the annual fall fair!
The fair is run solely by a group of hard-working WNAS members and volunteers, and of course extra volunteers from our community! So, when you see one of our volunteers - Thank them, because without them there would not be a fair. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please Contact US.

In addition our fair would not be a fair without our great sponsors! As you look through our pages keep them in mind. Their donations help keep our costs down, and help us to be able to bring this to you!

Lastly the fair owes a big thank you to you, our community for being there to support us! Your dollars spent in coming to fair, go 100% back into the Fair; enabling the WNAS to bring you an dynamic, annual event with an expanding roaster of entertainment and excitement.

And in the end... supporting All things Agriculture in our Community!

We hope, you have a great time at our Fair!

Each year we invite CHCH TV's Tim Bolen to come out for a "sneak peak" of our fair!
