The Ayer's Cliff Agricultural Expo - or Ayer's Cliff Fair

The Ayer’s Cliff Agricultural Expo – or Ayer’s Cliff Fair – are the common names for the annual exhibition of the Stanstead County Agricultural Society.The first meeting of the Stanstead County Agricultural Society was held in 1845 and was primarily intended to allow local farmers to come together and exchange ideas on farming. Residents of this county would enter their farm animals and crops to compete. During this time, the ladies exhibited their cuisine and their craft work. From 1845 to 1872, exhibitions were held at various locations in the county, but in 1872 Ayer’s Cliff, in Quebec, became his permanent home.

The first three-day fair was held in 1913. Horse racing was one of the attractions at that time. Today, the Ayer’s Cliff Fair retained the original events, but added various attractions, such as rides, musical performances and many arcade games with prizes. Families from around the world gather to enjoy the excitement and camaraderie of this annual four-day exhibition.
