Schomberg Agricultural Fairground
Come THROUGH THE FARM GATES toCelebrate the 170th Anniversary of the Schoomberg Fair!
These days, sometimes it seems like everything is frantic, commercialized, and overcrowded. Nothing could be further from the truth for the Schomberg Fair, a colourful celebration of local agriculture, art, and talent.
Held at the Schomberg Fairgrounds, which are nestled in the heart of downtown Schomberg, the fair offers a sprawling array of fun activities that are perfect for the entire family, and give a glimpse into the area's agricultural roots.
The livestock demonstrations and competitions are a great way to learn all about the animals, meet the farmers and cheer for your favourite. The petting zoo is a must for the little ones.
Feel like a kid again at the fair's fantastic midway. Dare your friends to go on the Tilt-a-whirl. Enjoy watching your children run and play, as well as compete in the midway games. And as always, there are plenty of rides for the little ones too! Here's a little secret - rides on the Midway are FREE on the opening evening, Thursday!
Every Friday night, everyone gathers on the hill for a good old fashioned Demolition Derby. Cheer for your favourite driver and brace yourself for the smashups...because they happen.
There’s an amazing variety of foods from the South American Food truck to the British Food truck, as well as traditional fair foods like hamburgers, hot dogs and fries. Indulge your sweet tooth with plenty of options including butter tarts and candy floss, fudge snocones and more.
The theme for the Fair this year is Through the Farm Gates.
