Fall is such a special time of year. The season is changing, trees are changing colours, the air has that crisp smell to it and we get to experience fall festivals. They bring communities together and have a history of doing just that.
The fall fair was a way to bring all the farmers together to talk about agriculture and share techniques. Eventually it lead to what we now know as the fall fair or festivals. They would have competitions and most still do. For things such as best pie, best bull and best yields. The agriculture societies were born and we still benefit from them today.
There are an endless amount of festivals that are happening from the start of September to almost the end of November. Here are a few we thought sounded fun.
The Bobcaygeon Fall Fair
Ontario is home to one of the oldest fall festivals, The Bobcaygeon Fall Fair in Kawartha Lakes. This festivals runs from September 27th to the 29th. This year is particularly special as they are celebrating their 160th anniversary. The theme will be about taking us back to 1898. This is for sure something you should go and experience.
