The Massey Agricultural Society was organized on July 13, 1907, hosting its first meeting with an attendance of over thirty men.
A board of directors was elected and their first concern was finding a suitable place to hold their first annual Fall Fair.
A local gentleman allowed the board to use his property free of charge in exchange for making some repairs to the building to make it suitable for the livestock animals and exhibits.
In 1912, the Agricultural Society of Massey purchased 8 acres of estate land and for the past one hundred years, this is where the Massey Fair has been held, drawing crowds from across northern and central Ontario.
Each year, the Massey Fair hosts horse shows, tractor pulls, mud bogging, food and gift vendors, the midway carnival, a parade, live entertainment, contests, games of skill, bingo, demonstrations and so much more!
Throughout the last century, many improvements have been made to the land and to the fair. In 2010, an additional 40 acres of land was added to the existing site and a parking lot, with an entrance from Imperial Street, was created.
Thousands of people, representing multiple generations, pass through our fair gates every year and we hope to see many more people make the Massey Fair a part of their yearly tradition
