The Norwood Fall Fair

Thanksgiving Weekend -  October 6, 7 & 8, 2018

Celebrating our 150th year
"Proud of the Past, Poised for the Future"

Please join us in the picturesque village of Norwood, Ontario for the annual Norwood Fall Fair. The Norwood Fair was established back in the year 1868 as a place for area residents to display the fruits of their labours and to provide an opportunity for some friendly competition between friends and neighbours. The fair was also a community gathering 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 Norwood Fair has of course grown and evolved substantially in the last 150 years, our mandate however has not changed, it is and always will be our mission to provide you and your family with a traditional country fair filled with lots of fun and excitement.

In honour of our 150th year we have chosen “Proud of the Past, Poised for the Future” as our theme.
