For many, the focus of a country fair are the animals. Dedication to the breed and pride of ownership is evident as cattle, horses, goats and sheep are displayed to show off healthy bloodlines and outstanding performance. The Norwood Fair is no exception. Please check the schedule for exhibits, demonstrations and auctions.
Exhibitors: For full details on entry rules, classes, prize money and registering please visit our Fair Book (available on our home page or by using the link on the left side of this page.)

Who knew that there were so many types of chicken? Do the kids know how large a goose is when you get close up to it? The turkeys, of course, are all busy this weekend.
But wait, there's more!
