Special Events



Held every Labour Day weekend, the award-winning Paris Fair is a tradition that entertains over 30,000 people with world-class concerts, the area’s largest midway and more.

The Paris Fair is southwestern Ontario's largest small country fair. Entering its 159th year of operation, it is truly what the tag line states - "It's where friends meet."

You are invited to come admire agricultural displays, home craft exhibits, take in the tastes, smells and sounds of midway, or cheer on your favourite driver in the demolition derby. The Paris Fair is the place to show your kids the multitude of farm animals there are, as you can enjoy one of the many horse, goats, cow, and pet shows. Come for the fun, stay for a delicious home-cooked meal from our Homecraft Division.

Get up close and personal with some different livestock in the Agricultural Awareness Pavilion, and if you're lucky, watch a baby chick hatch out of its egg!

NEW for 2017 is the addition of a 3rd demolition derby night on Friday featuring 4 cylinder classes and a figure 8 race. Saturday and Monday night's demo derby will be reserved for the big smashes and crashes of the big cars and trucks!

Sunday night's Country Music Concert will also be free with gate admission to celebrate a great Canadian musician as well as Canada's 150th Anniversary. Tune in to the Paris Fair website in July when the artist's name is released.
