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.
