​A Little Bit About Us:

​Dating back to 1856, the roots of the Arthur Agricultural Society run deep. Our Biggest event of the year is the Arthur Fall Fair, which is held every year the weekend after Labour Day.  This Annual Fall Fair is what started the Society and has been running for more than 150 years. The Arthur Agricultural Society is completely volunteer run, with a very limited budget. The group of dedicated volunteers are members of the community and surrounding area, as well as people that care deeply about the importance of community, heritage, agriculture.

In addition to the Fall Fair, The Arthur Agricultural Society also participates in various community activities. Some of these include:  Beat the Winter Blues Dinner, Entertainment Night and 4-H dinners.
