2018 Presidents Message
On behalf of the Sutton agricultural society, I would like to welcome you to the 163rd Sutton Fair and Horse Show. This year’s theme is “Women in Agriculture”. This theme resonates with many families in the farming community who recognize contributions made by women to this important industry. I encourage you to not only take in the usual attractions at the Sutton Fair, but take time to enjoy the agricultural aspects to our fair. We have: livestock displays, many horse shows, sheep show, cattle shows and displays in buildings. Scheduling entertainment the whole family can enjoy is important to our Entertainment Committee every year. We are excited to welcome back Aqua Dogs, Zoo to You, Circus Jonathan and Paw Patrol to the Sutton Fair this year. We have added Powerwheels Derby to the entertainment schedule. The Sutton Fair and Horse Show is a 100% volunteer run event and I must thank our executive, members and volunteers for doing an outstanding job every single year to bring this event to Georgina. I am honoured to be part of this group of dedicated individuals that have given so much of their time, over generations, to bring our Agricultural Fair to our community for 163 years. I hope to see you at the Sutton Fair and Horse Show this year. year’s fair has to offer!
President Sutton Agricultural Society
Lauren Mew – 2017 Senior Ambassador
On behalf of the Sutton Agricultural Society, I would like to welcome you all to the163rd annual Sutton Fair and Horse Show. It’s hard to believe that my year as Ambassador has already come to an end, but what an amazing year it has been. I feel honoured to be a part of, as well as represent a community as caring and accepting as ours. I am also proud to have represented our fair as well as our agricultural society. I am looking forward to further representing our community in the 2018 CNE Ambassador Competition.
Samara Aabo – 2017 Junior Ambassador
It’s fair time again! As the Junior Ambassador, I would like to give you a warm welcome to the 163rd Sutton Fair and Horse Show. As Junior Ambassador for 2017/18, I have had an amazing time experiencing and participating in the fair at a different level. As Junior Ambassador I had the opportunity to welcome the public to the fair, hand out ribbons at different shows including the baby show, seeing all the cute faces and enjoyed watching the various shows going on. Being able to watch the evening shows close up in the pit, such as the demolition derby, was quite thrilling. I also got the opportunity to participate in community events such as the Sutton Santa Claus Parade. The parade was definitely a success with so many familiar faces watching. I also was able to attend the Sutton Fair Dinner & Dance. Being the Junior Ambassador, I have had the opportunity to public speak, meet new people and become more confident in who I am. I would like to give a huge thank you to the Sutton Agricultural Society and all the people who made my experience as the Junior Ambassador memorable. I hope you enjoy the fair this year and have memorable moments.
2018 Mayor’s Message
On behalf of the Town of Georgina and Council, I am pleased to welcome everyone to the 163rd Sutton Fair and Horseshow. I appreciate this year’s fair theme, “Women in Agriculture” as I was raised on a farm. I saw my mother drive tractor, work in the barn, cook the meals and of course, the frequent emergency “parts run”. Sutton Fair has something for everyone to see. Whether it is the horse or livestock shows, the flowers, vegetables and crops, or the homecrafts and artwork on display, you will be kept busy at the Fair. There is no shortage of entertainment, from musical performances, to horse pulls and tractor pulls, livestock shows and of course the ever-popular demolition derby. The midway offers games to play and rides to experience, always a lot of fun for everyone. The annual Sutton Fair and Horse Show is an event not to be missed. Whether it is your first time or an annual family event, I know you will have a great time! Enjoy the 163rd Sutton Fair and Horse Show!
Mayor Margaret Quirk
