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.
With well-maintained, quiet roads and amazing scenery, Grey County is truly a cycling destination. Home to the annual Centurion cycling race, the region has become a training ground for racers and recreational cyclists alike.

Enjoy the views of Geogian Bay as you ride the Blue Mountain Gondola up the Niagara Escarpment. The rest of the route is like a roller coaster, cruising downhill past agricultural lands, passing orchards along the way.
