Announcing our new The 2019 WNAS Board of Directors A special thank you to our Guest Speaker, Marvin Ryder, who spoke about the changes in our Nation and impacts on Agricultural Fairs; and in turn, how as a Agricultural society, we must adapt to thrive!
About the Fair!
We are excited again to be offering our Annual Fall fair this September 7th - 9th, 2018.
And our theme! "Root & Boots"
Brought to you by the West Niagara Agricultural Society.
Agriculture at its best!
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 event, with this being our 4th year at our new facility. The fair is an 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 historical tradition of the annual fall fair!

Here's a question for you! - Do you have a skill? A hobby? Do you make things from wood? Do you do crafts? paint? knit? bake? Grow vegetables? or do canning? or ...?
Did you know you do not need to live on a farm or be a farmer to be involved with Agriculture? or to enter things in the fair?
Check out our prize books and enter! You can win $$$ and/or prizes - - -
But remember to enter in the fair, you need to do it BEFORE the fair! (All details are in our prizebooks!)
A bit more about the West Niagara Fair and who it is that actually brings you the fair.
The fair is run solely by the hard work of the West Niagara Agricultural Society, a group of hard-working 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.
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 enterainment and excitment.
And in the end... supporting All things Agriculture in our Community!
We hope, you have a great time at our Fair!
