As crisp fall days replace the hot and humid days of summer, we start thinking about Thanksgiving and the bountiful fall harvest. What better way to celebrate both than the Markham Fair. Held each year the weekend before Thanksgiving, the Markham Fair is the largest fair of its kind in Canada.
The fair has something to delight everyone, with a monster truck show and demolition derby, as well as a six horse hitch and super-dog demonstration. Ride on the midway, enjoy live country and rock bands and stay for the giant fireworks display. Older kids will enjoy the Teen Talent Show, while little ones have their faces painted, see newborn farm animals or meet The Puppet Tamer. Refresh yourself in the wine and beer tent, and learn where your food comes from at the Agri-Food Tent, where you can milk a cow, grind wheat for flour or plant a bean seed.
Since 1844, the Markham Fair has been a major event in York Region. Featuring the perfect mix of city and country, York Region is the place to be when it comes to theatre, art, music, golf, wineries, hiking and world class attractions.
