Community Sep 15, 2017 by J.P. Antonacci Norfolk News

Before Young Canada Day fills the grandstand with screaming teens and the Norfolk County Fair kicks off in earnest, the fair board hosted a dinner for the sponsors and community partners whose financial and material support make the long-running fair possible every year.

"The community pride is palpable," said the fair's general manager, George Araujo, before dinner was served at the Junior Farmers Building on Sept. 12.

Sponsors, Araujo continued, help the fair "sparkle more brightly every year", a testament to the fair's 177-year history and its continuing tradition of excellence.

"We have volunteers, staff, and vendors that have been with the fair for multiple generations," development officer Catherine Akins pointed out.

This year's edition of the fair welcomes as headline performers Tim Hicks and Chad Brownlee, whom Araujo called "the twin champions of Canadian country music".

The fair runs Oct. 3 to Oct. 9. Visit norfolkcountyfair.com for the full schedule.
