Info on COVID-19 Precautions at the Fair

September 22, 2021

Proof of Vaccination 

Proof of Vaccinations will not be required for entry to the Fair.

Guests 12 years of age or older choosing to enter indoor spaces (Buildings and Barns) will be required to provide proof of vaccination by presenting either their original printed vaccine receipt or digital .pdf vaccine receipt which confirms that they have received at-least two doses of an approved COVID-19 vaccination at least fourteen days prior to entry. Guests 18 years of age or older must also produce a valid form of photo identification (driver’s license, passport, etc.) for verification. This is a Provincially mandated requirement for entry to non-essential indoor spaces throughout the Province of Ontario. You do not need to provide proof of vaccination to enter washrooms. A negative COVID-19 test is not considered proof of vaccination and will not be accepted.

Five Proof of Vaccine-check stations will be set up on the Fairgrounds. After producing sufficient proof of vaccination, guests will be provided with a wristband which will allow them access to indoor spaces on the Fairgrounds. This wristband is good only for one day. Reverification will be required each day of the Fair.

Face Coverings

All guests must demonstrate at the gate that they have an approved face covering which fully covers their nose and mouth. Face coverings must be worn in any indoor facility including washrooms, buildings and barns. Face coverings must also be worn in seating areas, and anywhere where 6 feet of physical distance between people from other households is not possible.

Physical Distancing

All guests must maintain a distance of at least six-feet (2 metres) between themselves and people from other households whenever possible.


Increased Sanitization

Hand sanitizer stations will be available for guests at all washrooms, entrances and exits to buildings, and throughout the grounds. High-touch surfaces will be sanitized regularly and washrooms will be cleaned frequently to maintain sanitary conditions.

Capacity Limits

The Fairgrounds and all buildings within, will have limited capacity (75% outdoors and 50% indoors). You must reserve your seat for the Rec Centre shows online ahead of the Fair.

Staff and volunteers will be actively screened each day before starting work. Guests to the Fair will be required to self-screen before entering. If you are sick or experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, please stay home.
