The Turkey Fair would like to send its very deepest condolences to the Antoines, who tragically lost their beloved Mack, one of their percheron draft horses, today at the fair. It has been confirmed that Mack had a heart attack.
Both Mack and his friend Prince were being rested and watered regularly today. This death was inevitable. The family takes some comfort in knowing that he didn’t suffer and his friend Prince is going to spend a few days with some other horses so that he’s not alone. Prince and Mack had been together for almost 9 years, since they were 1 1/2 years old.
The Antoines are a respected family in our community and we ask that only offers of condolence are left here. They are responsible horse owners with extensive experience. They would like to send thanks to everyone who was so kind in helping them and Mack. Please join us in supporting them through this very terrible time.

Hey everyone! We’re gearing up for this year’s fabulous Lyndhurst Turkey Fair! Mark your calendars for Saturday, September 15. We’ll have lots of your old favourites like Little Ray’s Reptiles and the Jonas St. Music Festival, along with the always fun children’s area, great food and tons of entertainment. Keep and eye out for some new things too! Did you know its the 25th anniversary of the modern day Turkey Fair? Come be part of the celebrations! Vendor spots are filling quickly so if you’d like a spot, please contact us soon. Hope to see you there!
Hey fairgoers! First some business…when the draw winners and unclaimed button numbers are compiled, they’ll be posted on the Facebook page and on the website, along with a post that will be sent to subscribers of this website. If you won an item at the silent auction, pick up is today from 10 am – 1 pm at the Outdoor Education Centre on the main street (next to Wing’s).
Wasn’t that an incredible day!? We’re so thankful that we had perfect weather. We definitely were due! We’re also thankful for all the patrons who came out and made the day so special. There were seasoned fairgoers and first-timers and it seemed that a great time was had by all. We had the biggest car show ever, great music all day, so many awesome vendors and tons of great food. To celebrate Canada 150 we had painted canoe paddles on display and to add to the celebration of our local history, information about our exciting archeological dig that happened just last week. Our beautiful waterfront is a special place for the villagers and we’re so happy to share it with all of you.
Thanks to everyone who participated to make the fair happen – volunteers who worked tirelessly to plan and prepare, those who came to physically make it happen and then take it all away. Without volunteers, the Turkey Fair (and really, our entire world) wouldn’t be what it is today. Seeing so many people come to enjoy the fair and having our village seen and loved by so many is a great reward.
We’ll see you all next year on September 15, 2018.
What better way to end your fair experience than a home style turkey dinner? There are 2 places to find delicious turkey dinners: The Post (main street of Lyndhurst) will start serving at 3:30 pm and The Junction (Hwys 15 & 32) will be serving their’s at 4 pm. Enjoy!
We’re happy to announce that Kirk Francois, Elvis Tribute Artist, will be returning to the fair this year. We’ll also have Fiddle Earth, a new addition to this year’s line up along with The Rifle & The Writer, The Chris Royer Band, Backlash and Simon Clarke.
The Jonas Street Music Festival will take place again at the big blue house on Jonas St. where you can find great bluegrass bands from morning till the end of the fair.
The Classic Car Stage will have local country artists for your enjoyment as always.
It’s going to be a great day!
