Do you love attending the Markham Fair each year? If yes, we are looking for two young leaders within our community to represent the Markham Fair as our Ambassadors!
As Markham Fair Ambassadors, you have the opportunity to see the Fair in a whole new perspective while connecting with our incredible volunteers and engaging with our dedicated Fair patrons each day! This leadership role is supported with great prizes, 4 days of fun at the Fair, and for our senior ambassador an amazing scholarship opportunity and a once-in-a-lifetime journey to represent our Fair alongside the other Fair Ambassadors of Ontario at the CNE Ambassador Competition in 2024.
As the Markham Fair Ambassador, you will represent the Markham Fair during the Fair and attend local community events throughout the year. The Markham Fair is proudly represented by two Ambassadors, our Senior Ambassador (a person of any gender between ages 18 – 24) and our Junior Ambassador (a person of any gender between ages 12 – 15).
These roles have varying levels of commitment so please refer to our Ambassador Program Details and Competition Day, and FAQ links below for more information.
The 2023 Senior Ambassador Contest will be held on Thursday September 28, 2023, 1:00 pm at the Markham Fair Grounds, in the Wine Tent. The Sr. Ambassador winner will be announced on the Wine Tent stage and at the Opening Ceremonies.
Senior Ambassador contestants will be required to give a 2-3 minute speech on a topic given to them prior (relating to the fair, community, etc.) and answer an impromptu question. Contestants are judged on their ease of communication at a microphone, general knowledge of the Fair and it’s activities, and their overall poise while interacting with our Fair patrons and the general public.
The Senior Ambassador will represent Markham Fair for the 2023 season (September 28, 2023 to October 3, 2024). The roles and responsibilities will vary throughout Fair time and also at several functions throughout the year.
The 2023 Junior Ambassador Contest, will be held on Friday September 29, 2023, 5:00 pm at the Markham Fair Grounds, on the Outdoor Stage.

Junior Ambassador contestants will be required to submit a digital ‘All About Me ’presentation which will be submitted prior to the fair and will also be judged on a two minute speech. Contestants will also be judged on their poise and ability to communicate both on stage, with the judges and interacting with the public.
