Look Who’s Coming to the Fair . . .
Welcome everyone to the 185th Napanee Fair!!!
I remember bringing the children to our fair and exploring the many activities that the fair has to offer. Seeing all the farm animals was very different than being around our family pets. Who knew there were so many types of cows? Stop in the barns and see. In 2000 I became involved with the Agricultural Society as Secretary Treasurer. During the twelve years in that position I enjoyed learning many different aspects of agricultural life. Now as President I enjoy seeing the tireless work of our many volunteers that bring this fair to life. We are always looking for new volunteers or ideas. I look forward to meeting people of the Community during the Fair. Please stop and introduce yourself to me.
I encourage everyone to look around this site and read the fair book and see the many categories that are possible to enter. We have something for everyone — from the baby show to home crafts to livestock. Come to enjoy the Truck and Tractor Pull, Grand Stand Show, Horse Shows or the Demolition Derby. 4-H has many events planned for everyone to enjoy.
CAROL McKINLEY, PRESIDENT

Johnny Burke and The Burnt River Band
Johnny Burke started his career in the early sixties in Toronto with a country/rock group called Johnny and the Bees, and then moved on to the Blue Valley Boys, his first professional job. He was booked for four years at the famous Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto where he backed name artists such as Lefty Frizzell, Tex Ritter, Loretta Lynn, Red Foley, Charlie Pride, Stringbean, Dottie West, Mel Tillis, Conway Twitty, Waylon Jennings, Glen Campbell, Bobby Bare and Carl Smith. Johnny enjoyed lengthy bookings first with Carl Smith's "Country Music Hall" on CTV, followed by his own syndicated tv show "At the Caribou", then with the band Eastwind on the CTV program "The Funny Farm", followed by a seven year engagement with Opry North. As Johnny developed a loyal following of fans with his own pure country voice and his hit record Wild Honey was named single of the year 1978, his records rose to top sales items across the country. Awards include Top County Group/Big Country Awards 1975, Top Country Single "Wild Honey"/Big Country Awards 1978, Top Instrumental Group/Big Country Awards 1978 and 1979, Induction into the New Brunswick Country Hall of Fame in 2005. The pleasure Johnny derives while performing spills over to his audience and back to the stage. It is always evident that Johnny Burke truly loves to entertain.
