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.
For the first-time ever, Grey Bruce music enthusiasts will have the opportunity to attend a music-themed trade show. SweetWater is presenting the first-ever Access Music Fair on Saturday, April 13 at the Harmony Centre in Owen Sound. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., everyone is welcome to attend this free event. SweetWater sees this new event as a way to link organizations to people looking for music teachers, people for music groups to join, people looking for music events to attend, and people looking for instruments to play.
