Presidents Message

Hello to all the fair supporters, I want to welcome you to our 2018 Zurich Country Fair.

As this year’s fair theme is “We All Pull Together” we have a lot of events that go along with this theme. I think that this year will be a fun-filled weekend for all ages. There is something for everyone!

We will be starting off the weekend with our Opening Ceremonies, Prince and Princess competition, crowning of the 2018/2019 Ambassador and we are bringing back the Talent Show! If you have a talent you want to share such as singing, playing a musical instrument, dancing, telling jokes or magic tricks we would love to see you perform! There are so many people in our community that have many talents and now is the time to shine!


On Saturday we will start off with our horse shows and parade.


To celebrate the theme we are going to be having a Tug-of-War competition Saturday afternoon. We would like to see our community come out and support the local pullers! While watching the Tug-of-War you will be able to enjoy an ice cold beer at our first outdoor bar!


Other events taking place on Saturday are the baby show, Little Tracks petting zoo, mini tractor pull, pet show, home craft exhibits, dance and much more!


On Sunday, to go along with our theme we will be having garden tractor pulls for the first time. We encourage people to enter in the pulls and also come out to watch! Sunday will also feature our old time jamboree, wrestling and the Southern Ontario Cattle Sorting show.


Lastly, I would like to thank the fair board directors, volunteers, sponsors, exhibitors and our wonderful community for their continued support. Without the directors and volunteers we would not be able to put on an event like this for Zurich! It takes a lot of team work and dedication and I thank each and every one of you who help make the fair a success! “Volunteers do not necessarily have the time, they just have the heart.”- Elizabeth Andrew


I hope to see you all out at our 154th Zurich Country Fair as “WE ALL PULL TOGETHER” to make it a successful year!
