Flag raising ceremony at Markham Fair to celebrate Markham Fair’s 175 anniversary and the City of Markham’s 225 Year anniversary. Mayor for the City of Markham, Frank Scarpetti and Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville Mayor Ian Lovatt were on hand to officially raise the flag with Staff, Volunteers and Markham Fair President Michelle Hulshof. These celebrations are a milestone for both the City of Markham and Markham Fair. The main message both Mayors and Ms. Hulshof brought was that Volunteers make up the core of what makes our fair so successful. In a time where other organizations are having challenges retaining volunteers, Markham Fair has been growing its volunteer base. For your dedication and hard work, we are all truly thankful. Come out to the fair and celebrate with us, October 3, 4 ,5 and 6, 2019.
