What a great day at the 2019 Turkey Fair!

The Lyndhurst Turkey Fair committee wishes to send out many thanks to all for such a great day! We had incredible weather this year! We hope you all enjoyed the day and took home good memories of your time at the fair. We appreciate all your feedback and please know that all comments and messages are being compiled for presentation to the committee. Your opinion matters to us and we make changes each year to try to improve the fair.

Thanks to all of our volunteers! Without so many coming together throughout the year and on the day, the Turkey Fair would not be possible. You’ve all created something wonderful!

Thanks to all of our donors, also without whom the fair wouldn’t be what it is. Whether it’s monetary donations, discounted rates, or items for the silent auction and prizes, we greatly appreciate the generosity that is show to our fair by local residents, businesses and artisans.

To our local villagers and businesses – your openness to sharing your property for fair events and the way you decorate and promote and take part in the fair shows our patrons what an incredible place this is to live. Thank you for your huge part in this day.

And to our fairgoers – we’re so grateful to have you all travel to our little village and enjoy all that we have to offer! It’s great to see people experiencing and enjoying this amazing place and we hope you’ll come back throughout the year!

See you next year on Saturday, Sept 19, 2020 for the 27th Turkey Fair!

What a great day it was! Thanks from the Turkey Fair…

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.

View the Canada 150 Paddles

Our township residents rose to the challenge when they were offered the opportunity to paint a canoe paddle to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday. These beautiful works of art can be viewed throughout the Turkey Fair at the Lyndhurst Legion, the United Church, the Lyndhurst Library and the Anglican Church. It’s quite something to see!
