Meet us at Bayfield Fair

People of all ages invited to Forestry, Fishing and Fields activities in Discovery Tent at Bayfield Fair

Bayfield Fair is August 17-19, 2018; Ausable Bayfield Conservation hosts themed activities at Discovery Tent on Saturday, Sunday

The popular Bayfield Fair returns this August 17-19, 2018 with a Forestry, Fishing and Fields theme. Community volunteers and staff from Ausable Bayfield Conservation are leading engaging activities around this theme in the Discovery Tent on Saturday, August 18 and Sunday, August 19.

The hosts will facilitate forestry, fishing, and fields activities from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. on the Saturday and from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on the Sunday. (There will be static displays from 12 p.m. noon to 4 p.m. on the Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the Sunday).

“This year’s theme of Forestry, Fishing, and Fields is important for our watershed community,” said Mari Veliz, Healthy Watersheds Manager with Ausable Bayfield Conservation. “From a watershed perspective, these three things are closely woven together. Feeding people, planting trees, and creating habitat for fish and other species are all ways we work together to create a stronger economic and environmental future. The community’s direction to us is to protect and enhance water, soil, and living things and the Forestry, Fishing and Fields theme fits well with that work.”

There will be activities and displays for all ages in the Discovery Tent, according to staff. There will be prizes too. Organizers say the activities in the tent will be fun and they will also be an active way to learn about trees, soil, and fish in our watershed.

“On behalf of the Board of Directors, convenors, members and volunteers, I would like to welcome you to our 162nd Community Fair in Bayfield,” said Jentje Steenbeek, Bayfield Fair President. “We are blessed once again to host a traditional fair celebrating the achievements and success of our rural community in one of the most picturesque communities situated along Ontario’s West Coast.” 

The Fair President said the theme of Forestry, Fishing and Fields will help to highlight some of the great Bayfield area attributes including thriving agricultural production, a beautiful location on the shores of Lake Huron, and local creative talents. This year’s Fair President said the 2018 theme is sure to “give creative inspirations that inspire all residents and visitors as they create beautiful entries in the many categories offered at the fair this year.”
