The Middleville Agricultural Society was formed in 1851 to help farmers improve their farming practices. It ordered pure and reliable seeds in bulk for its members, and imported purebred rams to boost the quality of local sheep and wool. In 1883, the Society purchased the fairground property and built the large Exhibition Hall. In 1902, the Temperance Society added a meeting hall, now used as a dining hall.
Since 1851 in September the Middleville Agricultural Society have organized the Middleville Fair as a fall celebration of rural life.
Agriculture is the main focus of the Fair, with animal, flower, fruit and vegetable exhibits and competitions. Crafts, baking and preserving, and heritage displays of antique machinery and household items, as well as old fashioned games and races for the children, fill out the day. There is a ham and bean luncheon, and fair day ends with the renowned homecooked turkey dinner. Come join us!
