the Bracebridge Agricultural Society
The Bracebridge Agricultural Society is a volunteer-driven, community-minded, registered non-profit
charitable organization. The objective of the Society is to encourage an awareness of agriculture and the environment by providing
opportunities, education and improvements to the quality of life for all citizens.
The Society fulfils this goal each year by holding the Bracebridge Fall Fair & Horse Show,
something that has been done faithfully since 1867. The tradition of the Fall Fair provides a venue where local citizens
can show their quality livestock, fruits and vegetables, flowers and handiwork to friends, family and neighbours who can also
enjoy the many other activities that are available to fair-goers. The fact that many of our citizens, young and old, have
fond memories of the event is something we are very proud of and take to heart.
Membership in the Bracebridge Agricultural Society is $5.00 a year and
can be purchased year round or at the fair. Anyone entering exhibits or competing in the competitions of the Bracebridge
Fall Fair & Horse Show must be a member (except for the Junior and Youth Fairs). Call Pat Munroe, Fair Secretary
/ Treasurer, at 705-646-2404 to join.
The Bracebridge Agricultural Society is a member of the Ontario Association of Agricultural
Societies (OAAS) and specifically,
Bracebridge is in what is referred to as District #11 of the OAAS. The OAAS is a unifying body for Agricultural Societies
in Ontario which through communication and educational activities provides leadership to the entire agricultural industry.
