The 97th annual Royal Agricultural Winter Fair is hitting Toronto once again—this year from November 1 until November 10—and it has tons of fun for families in store.
Whether you’re into world-class competition, learning about locally-sourced food or getting up-close to show animals, The Royal has something for all ages to enjoy, including a rodeo with bull, saddle bronco and bareback riders from across the country.
If this ain’t your first rodeo and you’d like to see what else is in store, here are some other great family favourites to check out.
Farm To Table Discovery Zone. Meet beekeepers, find out how greenhouses work and take a virtual reality tour of a dairy farm at the Farm To Table Discovery Zone. Offering interactive, fun and educational experiences for the whole family, you can see, touch and taste your way through all the steps in growing and supplying local foods.
Animals at Work and Play. Check out all of the skills of both horses and riders in the Spirit of the Horse™, border collies herding sheep on command shows, President’s Choice SuperDogs, the Toronto Police Service’s Mounted Unit and more!
The Classic Events. Spend the day perusing the massive butter sculptures, browse and shop at all the great vendors and check out the petting zoo, too.
Wine, Dine & Unwind. Adults can check out the Craft Beer and Cider Awards, among other food events, to sip, sample and savour great local food and beverages.
The Royal Horse Shows. And, of course, everyone can check out the horse shows! International show jumping athletes make their way to Toronto from all corners of the world to compete in the show. Along with Hunters and Jumpers, you will be amazed at the many different breeds of horses that pull carts, coaches, wagons and big hitches.
It all starts on November 1 and runs until November 10. Find out more and get your tickets here.
