About Us

We love to celebrate agriculture! Our Board of Directors and volunteers will be working together to plan on ways to continue to celebrate and educate about agriculture in our community. We are building on the experience we have gained to create our 2021 Ripley Fall Fair that will work safely within the protocols that have been established for COVID -19 safety. Please follow our Facebook pages - Ripley Agricultural Society and Ripley Agricultural Society Ambassador, Instagram @ripleyfallfair.ambassador and our website www.ripleyfair.ca in the coming months for notice of our fall fair activities.

The Ripley Agricultural Society would like to thank the Sponsors, Donors,Businesses, Organizations, 4-H Members and Leaders, High School Volunteers and the hundreds of VOLUNTEERS who gave of their time, talents or finances each year to make the Fair a huge success. Thank you to the Township of Huron-Kinloss Council for allowing us the opportunity to expand the Fair and to the Township staff - your cooperation and assistance is greatly appreciated. Our heartfelt Thanks to the volunteers of the Ripley Fire Department, Emergency Medical Services staff who provide a safe environment for our Exhibitors and Patrons. Thank you to our exhibitors, young, old, experienced and new; you are all winners when you participate.

Fair Announcement for 2021

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.
