Welcome To Our New Website!
Our town may be small, but our passion for agriculture, youth involvement and community is BIG. For hundreds of years, the Glencoe Agricultural Society has hosted events, promoted new and established businesses, supporters, exhibitors and built upon Glencoe’s sense of pride and fellowship. Empowered by the incredible support of our sponsors and the exuberance of our townspeople, we look forward to continuously renewing – and building upon – our commitment to agricultural and philanthropic vitality. Throughout the year, Glencoe citizens and visitors from across the region can look forward to special events – large and small – that create the very best excuses to get out of the house and spend time with loved ones.
We always welcome feedback from our community members and monthly meetings are held to ensure we are aligning with the best interests of the people and personalities who sustain our vibrant community. The Glencoe Agricultural Society is bolstered by the thoughtfulness and dedication of our board members and volunteers as well as the continued support of our constituents. We invite you to learn more about our long, rich history and to see what exciting new initiatives we are looking forward to implementing. Should something spark your interest, please don’t hesitate to reach out to find out more about getting involved.
Celebrate our region’s bounty at the annual Glencoe Fair
Since 1876, in the spirit of showcasing regional talent, the Glencoe Agricultural Society has hosted the Glencoe Fair. This annual tradition raises agricultural awareness in exciting, family-friendly ways, while encouraging communal appreciation for the diligence of the people whose hard work keeps food on our tables, through our community’s agricultural roots. Welcoming more than 5,000 attendees and nearly 900 exhibitors, this event is not to be missed by those with an appreciation for culinary, agricultural and handcrafted excellence.
Join us at the Glencoe Fair to discover the perfect combination of hometown hospitality, local talent, world-renowned taste and promoting agricultural flair. Located in the heart of Southwestern, Ontario, our heritage town beams with pride regarding our neighbours’ commitment to delivering on farm-to-table freshness and downhome uniqueness.
The Glencoe Agricultural Society sets priority and prides itself in supporting the youth through the Senior and Junior Ambassador programs and the long standing 4-H program in the local community.
Let’s cheer to the goodness of Glencoe & help sustain a meaningful way of life
Call us old-fashioned, but we are eager to maintain our region’s agricultural traditions and the wonderful sense of community that has underpinned Glencoe for nearly 150 years. Be part of our little movement, which champions a slower pace, profound sense of neighbourliness and appreciation for the natural beauty and bounty of our surroundings. We will see you at the Fair.
