Pumpkin Day is a free family event at Bissel Park that coincides with the Elora Farmers Market. We celebrate the fall harvest, featuring all things pumpkin. Scheduled the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend, this event is aimed toward children of all ages. Pumpkin Day features a professional pumpkin carver, a bouncy castle, face painting, reptile show, great music, dancers, and pumpkins for carving.
We ask attendees to please bring cash or food donations for the Food Bank.
Get out of the city and get your country on! Celebrating its 186th year, The Fergus Fall Fair is a tradition of fun experiences for the whole family celebrating agriculture, community and the bounty of harvest season.
Since 1836 Fergus has been home to a vibrant agricultural fair. What once began as an event to educate farmers about improved farming practices and encourage healthy competition promoting the advancement of farming has evolved into what we know today as the Fergus Fall Fair – the tenth oldest fair in Ontario. Dedicated volunteers have worked hard, year after year, generation after generation, to organize the annual event.
While agriculture is still the focus of the fair, over the years it has grown to include truck and tractor pulls, handicraft and food exhibits, a midway, entertainment and so much more. The Fergus Fall Fair is truly a showcase of the talent among the Centre Wellington community and today’s volunteers are proud to be continuing an event with such a rich local history.
Whether you’re a veteran fair goer or first time attendee there’s something for everyone at the Fair. Come for a day, an evening or stay the whole weekend. The Fergus Fall Fair features livestock shows, truck and tractor pulls, a midway and an entertainment tent with shows for all ages.
Come enjoy the best in local agriculture, food and rural fun from across the area at the Fergus Fall Fair.
