President's Message

Traditions like the Norwood Fair do not happen on their own; these are the types of traditions that are born and nurtured year after year with excitement and anticipation. It's more than just a yearly event, it’s a feeling that you're reminded of all year long. As the leaves start falling every year, it starts to smell like the fair in Norwood - Not Fall! And it‘s an excitement that I know as a kid was only second to Christmas. Eat taffy somewhere in the Summer? Bet you compared it to Fair taffy! And we hope the petting zoo you visited on spring break will remind you of us too. The Norwood Fair tradition leaves everyone and every sense, waiting to return to us. And we are so grateful for the opportunity to provide friends and families (from both local and far) with a meeting place to do so.

It’s the same but a slightly different tradition for exhibitors, vendors and volunteers. Who all share the rewarding job of watching it all come together. We see the fairground rise from its quiet slumber in the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving weekend and be tidied up and put away the Tuesday after and it's nothing short of a miracle in organization.

It takes organizers, exhibitors and attendees lots of hours and effort to make our event what it is today. But it's worth all the inputs come Thanksgiving weekend. Especially as we watch you leaving our gates at the end of the day with smiles and a heart full of just enough tradition to hold you over until next year.

Hope to see you at this year's fair!

Krista Tweedie
President, 2022 - 2023
