When reminiscing about our childhoods, many of us remember attending numerous fairs, all of which would not be complete without stunning gymnastics shows or dazzling circus acts! At Markham Fair, there is a show for everyone, as visitors are sure to enjoy the wide variety of entertainment provided throughout the duration of the fair.

Motus-O Dance Theatre Presents: From Hand to Plow

It’s no secret that the Markham Fair has an appreciation for agriculture and how it has grown and evolved throughout the years. If you share similar interests, this act is perfect for you! Motus-O Dance Theatre has created an original production, called From Hand to Plow, detailing the history of agriculture and farming, performed through dance and rhyme. Motus-O Dance Theatre will perform their original production multiple times throughout the duration of the Fair in their Round Tent, which was made specifically for their event. Their performance is a short 15 minutes, but manages to hit home and cover a vast time period. Be sure to visit the Round Tent to witness this unforgettable performance!
