It is with heavy hearts that the Board of Directors of the Ripley Agricultural Society announce the cancellation of the traditional format of the Fair, scheduled for September 24 – 25, 2021.
Using all information currently available, the board made this decision considering the well-being and safety of our members, volunteers, judges, vendors, and visitors.
While we may have been permitted to run some elements of the fair, we will not be able to host the Ripley Huron Fall Fair the way in which we have been entrusted to do so for our community and to serve an annual homecoming for former residents.
Our Board of Directors and volunteers are committed to keeping the spirit alive with several events planned, both online and in person. Videos supporting agriculture are being created and our Online Auction will be posted at fair time. In person events, such as our parade, scavenger hunt, and the Ambassador Competition (with limited attendance) will happen.
Please follow our Facebook pages – Ripley Agricultural Society and Ripley Agricultural Society Ambassador and our website www.ripleyfair.ca in the coming weeks for additional information and notice of activities.
The directors extend special thanks and appreciation to our 2019/2020 Ambassador, Maddy Gallant who agreed to continue as Ambassador for 2020/2021. Maddy has been out in the community acknowledging the frontline workers, as well as promoting the work of the Agricultural Society.
We look forward to seeing exhibitors and visitors at the 2022 Ripley Huron Fall Fair - September 23 – 24.
