Fall fairs are ingrained in Grey County's history. Most still celebrate the season the way it has been done for well over a century in rural Ontario, with livestock and trained animal shows; bake-offs; fruit, vegetable, flower and preserve contests; parades; quilt and art shows; farm equipment displays; BBQ dinners and live entertainment.
Open from May to October - this lovely original school house is one of the best preserved school houses in Ontario - in that it was never converted to a private home, so still has the original chalk board and wood floors. Hosts an annual garden party in early July. Loads of artifacts and interesting local history. Rob Roy site also has an agricultural implements barn full of interesting early artifacts and images of people using them! Worth the stop, especially for those seeking their early roots in the area. Feversham site has been fully restored and renovated and hosts special events and workshops.
Studio124 is a 3 acre estate of gardens and forest with several large sculpture installations created by Marion Bartlett, as well as woodworking artistry by Richard Bino.
