2019 Presidents Message
On behalf of the Sutton Agricultural Society, I would like to welcome you to the 164th Sutton Fair and Horse Show. This year’s theme is “We Have a Good Thing Growing”. I encourage you to not only take in the usual attractions at the Sutton Fair, but take some time to enjoy the agricultural aspects to our fair. We have; livestock displays, many horse shows, sheep show, cattle shows and displays.
The Sutton Fair and Horse Show is Georgina’s largest annual event. It is organized by a group of dedicated volunteers who work year round planning these four days in August. If you see one of the volunteers make sure to take a moment to thank them because without the volunteers in our community, we wouldn’t have had that Agricultural Fair in our town for the past 164 years. I hope to see you at the Sutton Fair and Horse Show again this year!
President Sutton Agricultural Society
Emma Sommerville – 2018 Senior Ambassador
On behalf of the Sutton Agricultural Society, it is my honour to welcome you to the 164th Sutton Fair and Horse Show. Time truly has flown while having fun during this past year representing the Sutton Fair as Ambassador. This experience has been like nothing else and I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to represent such an amazing community and agricultural society. I believe that events like the Sutton Fair as well as events that I was able to attend throughout the year are what make our community such an amazing place to live. The Sutton Fair has been a staple of my summers for a very long time and this has allowed me the opportunity to participate in the fair in a completely new way. I truly encourage everyone to get involved with the fair, as it has brought nothing but joy and new friendships to my life, something for which I am very grateful. While my year as Ambassador has come to an end, I am able to look forward to representing our wonderful community and agricultural society at this years 2019 CNE Ambassador of Fairs competition.
Julia Gobio – 2018 Junior Ambassador
As the Sutton Fair Junior Ambassador, I would like to invite you to enjoy all that the164th Sutton Fair and Horse Show has to offer! I have enjoyed my time this past year participating in all the different experiences that this opportunity has offered me. As the Junior Ambassador, I had the chance to hand out ribbons at various shows including the babies. I was up close and personal with the Demo Derby and I also got to have a chinchilla on my head from the Petting Zoo. I was also involved with community events such as Remembrance Day Parade, the Fair banquet and the Santa Claus Parade. I loved all the smiling faces at the Santa Claus parade, it is a memory I will always remember. Being the Junior Ambassador has opened so many doors for me, allowing my public speaking to take me to new and interesting places. I would like to thank the Sutton Agricultural Society and all the people who made my experience memorable. This year’s theme is “We Have a Good Thing Growing” and I think I can say I am a living testament to the fair growing good things in Sutton for years to come.
2019 Mayor’s Message
On behalf of the Town of Georgina and Council, I am pleased to welcome everyone to the 164th Sutton Fair and Horse Show. The theme for this years fair is “We Have a Good Thing Growing” and here in Georgina, we certainly do! We have an extensive farming community in this town, with many farms having been family owned and operated for more than half a century! Not only is it the working farms that produce food and flowers, but many individuals get in the ‘growing spirit’ as evidenced by the submissions in the annual vegetable and flower competitions!
There is so much to see and do at the fair. There are many competitions in various forms – everything from livestock, arts and crafts and photography, to horse and tractor pulls and a demolition derby! There is no shortage of entertainment! You can enjoy musical performances, horse and cattle shows, a baby contest and the Sutton Fair Ambassador competition. The midway offers games of skill and chance and rides to thrill and excite you!
The annual Sutton Fair and Horse Show is highly anticipated each year and lots of fun for everyone! Once again, welcome and enjoy the 164th Sutton Fair and Horse Show!
Mayor Margaret Quirk
