Free Admission to Chesterville Fair

The Chesterville & District Agricultural Society (Chesterville Fair Board) announced last Friday that gate admission would be free for everybody on Sunday, July 28th. The gate fees will be covered by sponsorships from Ontario Power Generation (OPG) and the fair board.

July 2nd, the fair board announced free admission for children 12 and under, which it promised to do after its Facebook page received 1,000 Likes, and the challenge to Facebook users was continued. 

If the page could get 1,500 Likes, then everybody would get free admission; however, between OPG’s sponsorship and the board’s appreciation of the community’s support – both online and offline – it was decided that everybody will have access to Sunday’s festivities at no charge.

Fair-goers taking advantage of free Sunday will get access to an exciting day, including beef and goat shows, Dr. Kaboom, the baby show, dog agility shows, a pet show and a medieval show. The free admission will not include admission to the midway.

While not free, the rest of Chesterville Fair weekend still offers excellent value to provide an affordable day out for families. 

Friday kicks off with the midway opening early afternoon, a classic car show and Landmark. 

Saturday will feature a horse show, kickboxing and SportMMA demonstrations, Switchgear and, of course, the demolition derby. 

All-inclusive bracelets will be available throughout the weekend, giving access to the fair and all rides for only $25 per day.
