You are invited to join us in the picturesque village of Norwood, Ontario for the annual Norwood Thanksgiving Weekend Fall Fair. The Norwood Fair was established back in the year 1868. It was a place for area residents to display the fruits of their labours, an opportunity for some friendly competition between friends and neighbours, a community event where village folk came together to celebrate the harvest, catch up with each other and have a little fun for a couple of days. The Fair has of course grown in the last 148 years, however our mandate has never changed it is and always will be our mission to provide you and your family with an exciting and fun filled traditional country fair. 

We hope that you will make the Norwood Fair part of your holiday festivities when you celebrate the Thanksgiving Weekend with family and friends.
