The general store was once the original big box retailer; only it came complete with gossip and a place to tie up your horse. In Grey County, the general store culture is still thriving today. They have reinvented themselves to be everything a modern retailer cannot be, which makes them so much fun, and delicious.
Home grown, farm fresh and hand made exhibits, events and activities can be seen at this year's fair. The gates open Friday at 6PM and food vendors will be onsite. Enjoy the music of Thirsty Boys and the rising country star, Manny Blu (www.mannyblumusic.com) from the beer tent. Watch the opeing ceremony, view the exhibits, and kid zone activities will entertain the younger crowd. Saturday, there’s something for every age. Watch the dog agility show, draft horses, and wood carving; participate in home craft demonstrations and the excavator challenge; as well as taste the local ciders. Petting zoo, kid zone, rock climbing wall, laser tag, bouncy castles and much more are sure to entertain our fair patrons this year. End your fun day with the delicious roast beef dinner.
The fair is held at the Beaver Valley Community Center in Thornbury. For more information go to www.beavervalleyfallfair.ca.
