Look Who’s Coming to the Fair . . .

Welcome everyone to the 186th Napanee Fair!!!


Thank you to our Directors, Members and Volunteers for having the confidence in me to fill the position as President again for the following 2 years. I have been involved with the Lennox Addington Society for 17 years. During this time it has always amazed me of the tireless work of our many volunteers that bring this fair to life. Some Volunteers come out on a regular basis and some come just at fair time. We greatly appreciate the team approach from all our Fair Organizers and Volunteers. We pull this together like a well oiled machine. Congratulations!


I look forward to meeting people of the Community during the Fair. Please stop by and introduce yourself to me. We are always looking for new volunteers and ideas.  I encourage everyone to look through this website and the fair book and see the many categories that are possible to enter. We have something for everyone! New this year, we have our concert featuring Jason Benoit and Craig Curtis on Sunday evening in the Community Centre. We have some Canada Celebrations happening as well. And yes, we have the Midway, Petting Zoo and all the livestock animals that go along with an Agricultural Fair. The Homecraft Division entries are in the Curling Club - always a joy just to smell all the flowers while you look at the knitting, crocheting, art and baked goods. We start our Fair off on Friday evening with the Truck and Tractor Pull and the Talent Show, Saturday features our Horse & Pony, Sheep, Holstein and 4-H Shows, Sunday features our Goat & Beef Show and we end the Fair with our Demolition Derby on Monday. Enjoy!
