/, Markham Community, Prize Book/7 Reasons Why You Should (Definitely) Enter the Markham Fair

Be a part of the Markham Fair this year in a way that is fun, easy, and rewarding in more ways than one! Every year we have Homecraft competitions that ask Fair visitors to enter their homemade goods to compete against one another. The categories include everything from crafts to baking to flower arranging, and welcome all participants of any age or ability. There are several reasons why you won’t want to miss entering this year, but we’ve narrowed it down to seven important ones:

  1. It’s fun and easy.

    Crafts are fun, but sometimes they can get tricky. Luckily, the Markham Fair has so many categories that use materials you can find lying around the house. Create something using a wooden spoon (Section 11, Class 24), or get out your camera and snap some pics for our photography categories (Section 9). All you need to have fun is your creativity and imagination!

  2. You get to see your creations on display.
