2018 Homecraft President’s Message

It is my privilege to be Homecraft President for the 174th year of Markham Fair. Our theme for this year’s Fair is “Old Days-New Ways” highlighting our old country traditions rooted in agriculture and our constant evolution with the new information and technology that’s available to us now.

I’d like to thank my Executive, the Fair Board, all of the Fair staff as well as all Committee Chairs and members for their hard work putting together and displaying all of our exhibitor’s entries.

Our Homecraft division features Art, Photography, Flowers and Plants, Historical, Antiques, Needlecraft, Special Needs, School Children, Youth and Senior categories, Crafts, Baking & Preserves, International Art, Demonstrators and Christmas Collections. Please browse through our prizebook and participate in our Fair by entering in a section that interests you!

We’ll be looking forward to hosting our Senior’s Tea, along with CHATS, between 10-2pm, on the Thursday and Friday of the Fair.

While at the Fair, be sure to come into General Exhibits and Homecraft buildings to admire all of the entries. Then visit the venders in Commercial Exhibits building, see the animals in Old MacDonald’s, watch the competitions in the Livestock building and outdoors at the track. Don’t forget to explore the many activities and demonstrations in the Agri-Food tent, take in the thrills of the Midway and experience and enjoy everything that the Fair has to offer!!

On behalf of the Homecraft Division, we look forward to welcoming your entries and having you visit us during the 2018 Markham Fair!!
