The Lyndhurst Turkey Fair will be taking place September 17, 2011 in Lyndhust Ontario.
Every year, on the third Saturday in September, Lyndhurst’s population of roughly 300 residents swells to a bustling crowd of up to 5000. People come from near and far to enjoy the annual Lyndhurst Turkey Fair. Run by local volunteers, the event is reminiscent of a time when farmers would gather in the village to show and sell their finest poultry.
The free day of fun includes a quilt show, antique car show, craft sale, horse and wagon rides, an indoor garage sale, silent auction, golf tournament, live entertainment and several prize draws. The fair abounds with free activities for children such as a fishing contest, petting zoo, pony rides, games, carnival rides, crafts, a reptile show and more. Youths and adults also have the remarkable opportunity to race authentic St. Lawrence River Skiffs in Lyndhurst Creek. The proceeds from the Turkey Fair are given back to local charities and communities.
