2021 Theme – County Nights and Carnival Lights

During this time of uncertainty, and the rapidly changing threat of COVID-19, the Board of Directors of the Mitchell & District Agricultural Society made the very difficult decision to cancel the Mitchell Agricultural Fair. The protection of our members, volunteers and community were of the utmost importance in making this decision and we thank everyone for their support and understanding.

We are trying to Hold some events virtually so please check watch  announcements

President’s Message



     It is hard to believe that we are into our second fair season year under the effects of pandemic restrictions. However, with government mandated health restrictions slowly easing, we are looking forward to hosting a modified 167th annual fall fair this year on Labour Day weekend. Please check our website, social media pages and local newspaper for more information on upcoming fair events.

     Several committees have been working hard to put together some excellent local live entertainment, elementary and junior fair entry categories as well as some field crop entries. We would like to thank local businesses and individuals for their continued financial assistance and volunteer support which has assisted to keep our fair continuing.

     The annual Mitchell Fall Fair has been a catalyst to bring the town of Mitchell and surrounding area together for over 160 years. Circumstances over the past year have certainly encouraged us to stay home and stay local. Let us continue to support and strengthen the fine community we live in as well as our local fall fair.
