A special thank you to all our generous 2014 sponsors & exhibitors, our amazing group of concessionaires, the inside and outside entertainers, Robertson's Amusements for the spectacular midway, and most of all to our unbelievable staff, executive and the greatest bunch of volunteers in the Valley. Together you all made our 170th Richmond Fair the best ever.

- Gerd Lohmann, President

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 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.

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 and partnerships from individuals & businesses throughout our community.

New this year to help promote the Richmond Fair is the Decorated Bale or Lawn Contest

Each contestant must pre-register by August 22, 2014.

On Sunday Sept. 21st, the fair will again be holding a Youth Talent Contest at our Outdoor Stage.

Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three youths in the 12 year & under and 13-21 year old classes. Entries for the competition must be received on or before August 25th, 2014.

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.
