Overview | Location

Having officially earned the honour of “Canada’s Most Beautiful Village” in 1998, we are proud to have our Fair as a major yearly event in Merrickville.  Our fair grounds are situated at the western end of the Merrickville Locks on the historic Rideau Canal.
Our Fair was established in 1838, five years after Col. John By completed his canal.  The grounds were donated by Sam Jakes, whose three story general store known as the Jakes Block, still corners St. Lawrence and Main Street.  The Jakes Block stands as a beacon to guide one west along Main Street to the fair grounds.  We are less than an hour’s drive from both Ottawa, our nation’s capital, and the U.S. – Canada border.
The 2010 fair was a huge success with over 4000 people in attendance.  We hope to see you again!! August 12, 13, and 14 2011.
