2017 Homecraft President’s Message

On behalf of the Homecraft division of the Markham Fair, I would just like to take a moment and welcome everyone to the 173rd Markham Fair.  It is with great pleasure and an honour to represent the Markham Fair for the 2017 year as your Homecraft President. I would like to thank the many volunteers who take the time to show off the talents of all the exhibitors in the Homecraft buildings, not only during the 4 days from September 28 to October 1st but throughout the whole year. A big thank you also goes to all the Directors and Office staff who answer all your questions and keep the fairgrounds running smoothly.

Some of our volunteers have dedicated over 40 years to this wonderful annual Fair; the changes they have seen are remarkable. With this year marking Canada 150, the committees are going to do their best to showcase this milestone in buildings 1 and 2 and all over the fairground to highlight the growing technology and multiculturalism that Canada has embraced, through displays of cakes, photography, art, schoolwork and machinery to name a few.

So, grab your friends and family and come out, say HI and enjoy the Fair that we have all come to love. We look forward to seeing you.

Heather Kennedy
2017 Homecraft President.
