The urban and rural worlds meet at the Markham Fair on September 28, 29, 30, and October 1.
There is something for everyone to celebrate – from art and entertainment to animals and country cooking.
“It’s the best of both worlds,” said Chris Reesor, 2023 Markham Fair President. “Markham has the features of the city at its doorstep and 179 years of agricultural heritage behind its Fair.”
Hundreds of dedicated volunteers continue to be the core strength of this cornerstone community event which attracts upwards of 70,000 attendees.
It’s quite a package for the whole family. This year the Markham Fair features a variety of performers, from a meet and greet with Paw Patrol’s Chase and Sky to the renowned Freestyle MX Big Air Insanity and Monster Truck Crush show to the fabulous President’s Choice SuperDogs. They also have a terrific Teen Talent Show, Best Scarecrow, and Best Dressed Pet competitions, as well as a Monster Midway for fun.
Others will enjoy the High-Octane Tractor Pulls, a Demo Derby, Livestock shows, and the biggest Pumpkins and Squashes you’ll ever see.
With all those activities, you’re guaranteed to work up an appetite for some of the best country cooking and home baking that every city wishes it had.
It’s all at the 179th Markham Fair. See you there!
