The Richmond Agricultural Society (RAS) recently held its Annual General Meeting to elect the 2018 Board of Directors.

The 2018 Board of Directors has twenty-nine community volunteers leading the Agricultural Society in itsplanning for the Fair later this year. For 173 years, the Richmond Agricultural Society has promoted agricultural awareness. Our commitment remains unchanged, but we also see our community changing, and we are committed to changing with it.

The Richmond Agricultural Society operates year round and hosts many community functions on our grounds. Having just completed the Annual Richmond Agricultural Society Curling Bonspiel, we turn our attention to planning for our St. Patty's Day Party in March, ourAnnual Pancake Breakfast in April, and the numerous other attractions and events held on our grounds throughout the spring and summer.

With February upon us and theRichmondFaironly eight months away, there is lots of work to do as we get ready to host you and your family at the 174thedition of the Richmond Fair.

The Richmond Fair is unique in that it is by far the largest spectator event held annually within the surrounding community.

It promotes agricultural awareness within the City of Ottawa, a city with the largest agricultural land base and agricultural economy in Canada. The fair offers a venue for those in the community to showcase their arts, crafts, livestock, produce, etc. It is also an ideal place for hooking up with friends and neighbours.

Although the fair’s mandate has been to promote agricultural awareness within the community, the other non-agricultural events from previous years such as the demolition derby, live music shows, aerial shows, rock climbing, reptile shows, BMX bike shows, etc. provide a vast array of entertaining events for the whole family.

Sunday September 16th, 2018 - 12 PM

Do you SING, DANCE or PLAY an instrument and are between the ages of 6 and 20, then the Richmond Fair Rise2Fame Talent Search is looking for you.

The Talent show has been a highlight of the Richmond Fair for 8 years. Since its inception in 2010, the "search" has touched the lives of hundreds of talented performers from around the area and appreciative audiences have been captivated by their amazing talent.

The deadline for entries is Friday September 7th, 2018.

Over 30 different committees are involved in planning the Richmond Fair and other non-fair events held on the fairgrounds throughout the year. If you are looking for a way to give back to your community, come out and join us as a volunteer on one of our committees. Our annual fall fair is supported through fundraising events, donations & partnerships from individuals and businesses throughout our community.

We would like to again thank all previous years’ sponsors, patrons, visitors & volunteers. You all make our fair a success and hope you will be able to support us again this year.
