166th Ancaster Fair
September 22-26, 2016
On behalf of the Board of Directors and members of the Ancaster Agricultural Society , I would like to extend a sincere “thank you” to everyone who took the time to visit the 165th Ancaster Fair this year. It was our pleasure to show you the best of what our society has to offer. This, of course, wouldn’t be possible without all of our Fair exhibitors – thank you for showing! – as well as our many dedicated volunteers. The work done by our members and volunteers is what keeps the fair vibrant and exciting each year, and thank you to all who helped in any way.
I hope everyone had fun at the Fair, and look forward to seeing everyone again next year!
2015 AAS President
Welcome to the Ancaster Agricultural Society (A.A.S.)
The A.A.S. in a non-profit volunteer run organization. The object of the Ancaster Agricultural Society, and all Agricultural Societies, is to encourage an awareness of agriculture and to promote improvements in the quality of life of persons living in an agricultural community. This is outlined in the Agricultural and Horticultural Organizations Act.
The Ancaster Fair held the 3rd weekend after Labour Day each year is our primary event, but that does not mean we are inactive the rest of the year. Many committees are active all year either getting ready for the fair or organizing other events.
The A.A.S. offers many opportunities for young people, from fulfilling their mandatory high school volunteer hours to applying for post secondary school scholarships. There are also Junior Directors that sit on our board and of course our Fair Ambassador. So if you see yourself as a future community leader or public figure, or just want to get involved, visit our Volunteers page to get started.
