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)

President's Message

Thanksgiving! Can you think of a more meaningful word? In Canada we’ve been celebrating Thanksgiving since the 1500’s. It literally contains the noun meaning of “grateful thought” and the verb “giving”. It’s a challenge sometimes to remember to live each day with a grateful heart, but on Thanksgiving Weekend it becomes easy to remember in Norwood. We are fortunate to host our Annual Norwood Fair in a small community that supports us 100%, allowing us to showcase the harvest and hard work of our agriculturalists, artisans and schoolchildren.

Each year, when our gates open, we are thrilled to see so many smiling faces, all excited to see what awaits them. In a world so “connected” with Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, nothing makes us happier than seeing big groups of family and friends all sitting together watching a show, touring the petting zoo or finding a winning ribbon on a family members project. Youngsters are excited to meet up with school friends in the midway. Old friends, both current and from years gone by, gather in the stands and all around the rings to “watch the shows” and to “catch up”. Sometimes they haven’t seen each other in a few days, sometimes literally years. Generations of families will stand around in awe over the size of this year’s Giant Pumpkin. The sense of community, family and togetherness is everywhere. These are treasured moments in time, held as memories forever, the likes of which cannot be found on line.

Hopefully we will see you at this year’s Norwood Thanksgiving Weekend Fair. For those that attend annually “welcome back”, for those that are attending for the first time “welcome”. A wonderful experience awaits you and yours.

For those that take pictures to post online, please tag them: #Norwood fair, so we can see them too!

Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving, see you at the fair.
