About the Perth Fair

The Perth and District Agricultural Society was founded in 1845. Many things have changed over the years, including the name and location of the society. One thing that has remained is the dedicated volunteer base which has supported the organization over the years.

Did you know? – The Perth and District Agricultural Society is a non-profit organization that hosts the Perth Fair on Labour Day weekend in Perth, ON. The organization is made up of hundreds of volunteers who come together to present a balance between agricultural and entertainment events.

We continue to build upon tradition while embracing the future and look to bring the best possible Fair to the Perth Fairgrounds. Have you considered volunteering? Become a member of a strong volunteer based organization. Please contact us at .

Cyclosportif Perth – Cycle Tour

Cyclosportif Perth Cycle TourDate: Saturday, September 26th, 2015
Time: 7 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Cyclosportif Perth – Cycle Tour Route through Perth and District


Late September brings with it the beginning of the beautiful fall colours in the Rideau Lakes Township and we want you to experience it firsthand.

Come join hundreds of cyclists on the roads in, around and between Perth, Murphy’s Point, Portland, and Westport.

Cyclosportif Perth is not a race–there will be no results and no timed sections. You can go hard if you want, or you can simply take your time and enjoy the scenery.

We’ve got something for most everyone, from “The Roadie 100k” to “The Roadie 100 Miles” to the even more adventurous folks who like a bit of dirt and gravel with “The Dirty Version”–100k on a mix of paved and dirt roads.

16th Annual Perth Garlic Festival

Perth OntarioEnjoy 70 + Garlic, Artisans and Food Vendors on grounds at the 16th Annual Perth Garlic Festival taking place August 10-11, 2013.

Festival takes place and the Perth Fairgrounds (50 Arthur St., Perth, Ontario) Event takes place day Saturday and Sunday. Admission is $5 and children under 12 are free.

Held the second weekend in August, the Perth Garlic Festival is a celebration to the ‘stinking rose’. The warm August air of Ontario’s prettiest town is scented with the pungent aroma of garlic while thousands of ‘garlic heads’ revel in the many attributes of this wonderful herb.

The purpose of the festival is to promote Ontario grown garlic, share ideas on how to grow, harvest, market, cook and enjoy garlic, to bring together ‘garlic heads’ and producers on an annual basis, to provide a forum for the consumer to purchase Ontario grown garlic, to assist in the ongoing tourism development of the Perth community and to distribute the proceeds (almost $100,000.00 to date) of the festival to worthwhile community initiatives supported by the Lions Club of Perth.
