There’s nothing more charming than a small town fair. The petting zoos, the grilled corn, the parade’s, that unmistakable smell of ribs on the grill… it’s everything we want from a summer afternoon.
Well, mark your calendars because the Bayfield Fair is just around the corner! What started off as a Ribfest has evolved into a town wide celebration of local food, summer fun and community. This year, it’s all being capped off with fireworks to celebrate the fair�s 160th anniversary!
The Rib Fest will again be Friday night with four folks — including Cait Vail from Feast On? Certified Cait�s Kitchen — grilling up a storm. In true small town tradition, every rack or half rack is served with a cob of Ontario sweet corn and slaw. We can’t wait to see what Cait cooks up!
If ribs aren’t your cup of tea, there’s also a sprawling farmers’ market featuring some of the region’s most amazing finds including pickles, jellies, veggies and loads of heirloom tomatoes.
Music lovers take note: David Wilcox, The Salads and Odd Soul Collective, a group of soul loving musicians from the Exeter area, will be providing the perfect tunes for the day.
Details for all the great events — including Paint The Pony, weekend farmers market, knife throwing and the pop-up food truck festival — will be posted online as they are finalized. Check it out regularly at bayfieldfair.ca
