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.
There’s always something going on at the TOM!

Established in 1967, the Gallery is named for the iconic Canadian landscape artist Tom Thomson (1877-1917), who grew up in the area, and houses one of Canada’s largest collections of his work.
