Yes it’s that time of year again and the stars have certainly aligned for school aged children. Friday June 9th is a PA day which has given the Fair organizers the chance for an extra day of fun and activities. The Millbrook Fair will actually open on Thursday, June 8th at 9:30 am for students in grades 1 through 3. They will have the opportunity to visit a number of activity stations, supporting their early learning of all things agricultural.

Others can get a head start at 3:00 pm when general admission opens. The early birds will be ready for the midway to open at 4:00.

 This year marks the 168th year for the Millbrook Fair. That’s 168 years to perfect the full lineup of things to do and see. And there is something for everyone. What’s your preference?     

  •  The 4 x 4 Challenge
  • Ambassador Competition
  • Antique Tractor Show
  • Beef Show
  • Beer Barn
  • Demo Derby
  • Heavy Horses
  • Home Craft Show
  • Midway
  • Open Horse Show
  • Parade
  • Poultry Show
  • Rabbit Show
  • Truck and Tractor Pulls               

The 4 x 4 Challenge is hosted by the Kawartha Lakes Jeep Owners Club. Competition includes the Small Mud Pit, Big Mud Pit, Super Modified Challenge for Jeeps with tires 50 inches and over, and of course a Rock Crawl.        

The Ambassador Competition was designed for youth to show their leadership skills in supporting the community. Contestants have to complete a private interview, give a 2-5 minute speech on a selected topic, and answer an impromptu question. The ambassador will be present the weekend of the fair, attend the O.A.A.S Convention in Toronto in February at the Royal York and possibly represent Millbrook Fair at the C.N.E.  Ambassador Competition the following year in August. And a $500 scholarship will be presented to the winner.       

No Fair is complete without an Antique Tractor Show and Pull, Demolition Derby, and Truck and Tractor Pulls. Antique Tractors will compete in a variety of weight classes ranging from 2700 pounds to over 6500 pounds. The Truck and Tractor Pulls will include Local Gas 4 x 4 Trucks, Circuit Vintage Tractors, and Diesel 4 x 4 Trucks, including weights from 5500 pounds to 8500 pounds. 

If you want something a little more serene, you can enjoy the Home Craft Show including crafts, baking and more.

The Millbrook Fair offers something for everyone, including an extra day to enjoy it all. On Friday you can have a flat rate ride pass for only $15. Students will be able to get their fill of rides between 11 am and 2 pm, have time for a bite to eat, and be ready to enjoy the 4 p.m. opening to the rest of the fair grounds. Parents can enjoy award winning singer and songwriter Dean James in the Beer Barn.  

Saturday starts off with a bang! The Ontario Xtreme Cowboy Event at 9 am will feature contestants who will work through a series of trail and farm based obstacles on their horses – showcasing both skill and speed.  Sunday activities include the Rabbit Show, Baking Competition Auction, Tough Truck Competition and the Demolition Derby.  

There is so much to see and do for the whole family. Get all the times and days from the Millbrook Fair paper or at the Fair Website at www.MillbrookFair.ca.
