If you’re in search of some family fun this autumn, look no further than Ontario! You’ll have your choice of fall festivals and events around the province, including some of the oldest fall fairs, within a few hours’ drive of Toronto.
A Canadian Tradition.
Fall fairs are an old hat around here and many date back to the 1800s. Marking the time of the harvest in agricultural communities, fall fairs were transplanted to Canada by the earliest British settlers and have become a mainstay in the province and across the country. These events take place over a few days and usually involve agricultural competitions, home crafts, demolition derbies or tractor pulls, live music and performances and midways. And let’s not forget the traditions of Oktoberfest and Halloween!
Where will you go this fall? Here are just a few of the fun options from which to choose, in order of date.
