[dropcap]S[/dropcap]South Carleton is now just over a month away from the 175th Richmond Fair. This year’s fair promises to be one of the biggest and best ever. Aaron Goodvin headlines Friday, Sept. 20, while the Road Hammers will play the fair Sat., Sept. 21.

The Richmond Fair 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, and much more!

Each year the fair features events such as agriculture shows, demolition derby, live entertainment, rock climbing, games, rides, and more providing days worth of fun and entertainment for the whole family.

Over 30 different committees are involved in planning the Richmond Fair and other fair sanctioned events hosted on the fairgrounds throughout the year. 

The Richmond Fair is supported through fundraising events, donations and partnerships from individuals and businesses throughout our community.  

The Road Hammers will be playing at the Richmond Fair Sept. 21.
