A true classic country fair

 The first Fair in Hymers was held on September 12, 1912. Since then, the Fair runs the Sunday and Monday of each Labour Day weekend. The grounds were purchased and many buildings added since 1912, but the true country spirit of that very first Fair and market remains.   Intentionally, there is no beer garden and no midway; and to this day, the Fair remains uniquely country. The people in the rural area around Thunder Bay are still proud of producing their own food and raising their own livestock. They still like to compete with their neighbours when it comes to who can bake the best pumpkin pie or who has the nicest looking rooster, just like it was many years ago. The village of Hymers within Gillies jurisdiction and close to Thunder Bay, Ontario, is host to the Fair.
The vision of the Fair is an on-going commitment to encourage an awareness of agriculture and to promote improvements in the life skills and quality of life. This is the place to see the biggest pumpkins grown locally, horse and cattle shows, and to chat with the friendly people that come out each year to enjoy the real atmosphere of country living in Canada.
