The Mitchell & District Agricultural Society and the Mitchell Fair, The Biggest “Little” Fair in Ontario since 1854; are pleased to welcome you to our site. Below the Mitchell Fair has republished the President’s message from Winnie Linton that is included in the Fair Prize Book.

President’s Message:

With the Mitchell & District Agricultural Society’s “Accessibility Renovations” complete, we are focusing on the continuation of keeping the Crystal Palace a viable community asset. The Window Rejuvenation Project is in place to enhance the building’s outward appearance as well as maintain a solid structure; by replacing framing and insulation where necessary and completing each frame with a nostalgic black and white photo of fairs and events from years gone by.

The 163rd fair theme is “Crystal Palace Centenary”, so, as well as building upgrades, the Agricultural Society is also celebrating the generations of families that have dedicated many years of service to their community by generously donating their time and talents to keeping the Mitchell & District Agricultural Society a strong and vibrant entity.

Our September 1-3, 2017 Mitchell Fair promises many new attractions and activities for the young and young-at-heart with some of the most popular previous acts returning to delight all! Join us at the fair!

Find us on Facebook and watch the Mitchell Advocate for a complete section of “All Things Fair”.


Winnie Linton.

The 163rd edition of the Mitchell Fair promises to provide three full days of fun and excitement for the whole family. We look forward to hosting you.
