Paisley Ontario Fall Fair
Tucked in Bruce County, near Daniel and I is Paisley Ontario. It’s a very quiet community that is on the way to cottage country.
It’s along the Saugeen River, which also passes by Daniel and my place here in Walkerton Ontario. Established in 1851 by Simon Ochard and Samuel Rowe as a meeting point. The town, Paisley, named after the town in Renfrewshire, Scotland. It became known for several mills which included lumber and livestock feed.
Today, it’s a quiet little community and you can tell many buildings are older and have a lot of charm. What has always remained as part of the charm is the Paisley Annual Fair.
At the fair, you can expect to see judging for culinary, crafts, auctions and, of course, events involving livestock such as beef and dairy cattle shows. I know personally the competition is fierce and fun.
For the kids, they may enjoy the frog jumping contest, decorated bicycle competition, pet show and even the Kids Tractor Pull. There is a special place for youth with activities, demonstrations and music.
For this year, the Paisley Fair is Sunday, September 13, 2015.

Daniel and I may scoot off to visit this fair because it’s pretty much in our backyard!
