Markham Mayor’s Message – 2019
On behalf of Members of Council and the City of Markham, I am pleased to extend a warm and sincere welcome to family and friends attending the Annual Markham Fair 2019 held at the Markham Fairgrounds.
Canada’s largest four day fair is an integral part of our community, a staple in our calendar attracting visitors from all over the GTA. Markham Fair is one of Canada’s oldest country fairs and hosts upwards of 60,000 attendees and approximately 3,000 exhibitors.
It is where we celebrate our rich agricultural roots and heritage. Time at the Markham Fair is time well spent among family and friends. It is a time to connect to our past and present, while helping us gain a better understanding of the natural world around us with a deep appreciation for the immense contributions made by our farmers and growers.
I would like to express my sincere appreciation to the organizers, participants and volunteers who have dedicated their time and energy in making fair a success year after year. Congratulations on your outstanding efforts and for bringing us all together to enjoy the endless festivities. Thank you for making us all proud to call this community home.
