Thanksgiving Weekend - October 10, 11 & 12, 2020

The 2020 Norwood Fair has been cancelled

In this time of uncertainty, for the protection of our volunteers, for the protection of our community and also for the protection of our cash reserves, the Board of Directors of the Norwood Agricultural Society wishes to advise that the 2020 Norwood Fair is officially cancelled.
This decision was made after much consideration, discussion and anxiety and we thank everyone for their support and understanding. The Norwood Fair has weathered a few storms in its 151 years and we will get through this one too, we look forward to "business as usual in 2021".

Thank you
2020 Board of Directors
Norwood Agricultural Society (Norwood Fair)

Horse and Pony Events

We've got horses! They're in the parade and in the show ring, they haul some really heavy weights, race around barrels, and they'll even hang out to offer a ride. Make sure to check the schedule so that you don't miss any of these exciting events.

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.)

Ontario Xtreme Cowboy (OXA)

An event that challenges both horse and rider to maneuver through a series of trail & farm-based obstacles demonstrating both horsemanship and speed.

Heavy Horses

Did you know that the teamster's appearance is considered when judging a heavy horse? But pedigree counts most when the Belgians go blaze to blaze to compete for top prize. Also showing are Percheron and Clydesdales. See them in action before a wagon singly, in tandem, three abreast, four and even six! A magnificent sight, indeed.

Light Horses and Ponies

Walking, trotting, under saddle or in front of a cart, competitors of all ages display the breeding and manners of their favourite mounts. Antique vehicles, costumes, hackneys and roadsters are among the many categories.

Hunter and Western Shows

Watch these fine animals in action as the hunters take on fences up to 3' 6". Classes include Equitation, Pleasure, Hacks, Horsemanship, Gambler's Choice.

Horse Draws and Pony Pulls

This are not to be missed! These gentle giants actually seem to be having fun as they apply their powerful bodies to drag increasingly heavy weights. Visitors are asked to obey announced spectator rules to avoid confusing the animals.

Western Gymkhana Show

Plenty of fun and excitement to be had with this competition, for both participant and spectator. Classes include Barrels, Poles, Keyhole, Flag Races, Relay Races.
