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.

We had a GREAT time at the Lyndhurst Turkey fair. I can’t wait to see if we won something with our buttons. LOL So many artists, unbelievable items all over. Very well organized. Thank you Lyndhurst.
Thanks to all the organizers and volunteers. It’s a lot of work for you. My husband Mike McCann and I always enjoy participating in this event. So nice to see the turnout!
Fantastic day !!! As always better than expected. So many vehicles they ran out of room. ( great problem to have ). Wives had a great time looking at all the kiosk’s and buying more than they needed. ( Normal – ha ha ). Only idea i would like to see is when you present the Trophy’s you should not only give the Winners names but the year , make and colour of the vehicle. We all looked at the vehicles and would be nice to know if we picked the right ones. Thanks for a fantastic time and have next year on the calendar already !!!
That’s a great idea, Tom. I’ll pass that along to the people that run the car show. So glad you enjoyed the fair!
