165th Annual Harrow Fair 2019

August 29 @ 9:00 am - September 1 @ 6:30 pm

Harrow Fair

The 165th Harrow Fair presented by the Colchester South and Harrow Agricultural Society takes place August 29 to September 1, 2019. This is one of the longest running fairs in Ontario. The event has always stayed true to its roots with a focus on Agriculture in rural Essex County.

Enjoy farm equipment displays, fruits & vegetables, baking, needle work, farm animals, and other items. The Carter Shows Midway featuring fun carnival rides and games will thrill families all weekend long. Entertainment includes tractor pulls, lawnmower races and a children’s peddle pull.

This year organizers are bringing some fantastic live music acts including local entertainer and award winning Elvis Impersonator James Gibb (Thursday), Country Music singer/songwriter Kelly Prescott brings her smoky and sultry vocals to the stage on Friday (our friends Nicholas Claus & Mrs. Claus might be happy to hear this, they joined Kelly on stage a couple of years ago when the CP Holiday Train rolled into Windsor), Georgia native now based in Nashville, the incredible Craig Campbell will thrill the crowd on Saturday, and Sunday will see local young highly talented Windsor based Leave Those Kids Alone take the stage!

The annual Harrow Fair Parade, a crowd favourite event, takes place on Saturday morning at 11:30 am. Thousands of people line the streets and it’s a sea of smiling waving people thrilled by all the fun parade participants!

Another favourite event, the pie auction, raises thousands of dollars for the John McGivney Centre for Children with disabilities and special needs. Last year’s event raised $21,895!

The Harrow Fair is one of Essex County’s favourite end of summer events. Judging takes place starting at 9am on Thursday August 29 and the gates open to the public at 1pm.
