Established in 1830, Delta Fair is one of Ontario’s oldest operating Agricultural Fairs. The first president was the Honourable Charles Jones, Member of the Upper Canada Legislative Council. Until 1866, the Fair rotated locations between Delta, Farmersville (Athens) and Gananoque before settling in Delta, on land owned by the Thomas Morris family. The grounds were leased until 1911, when the Fair Board purchased the land at a cost of $1600.00

Originally incorporated as the “South Leeds Agricultural Society”, the members opted to change the name to the present, “Delta Agricultural Society”, following the 100th Anniversary in 1930. Now held annually in July, the Fair, also known as the “People’s Holiday” has taken place in August and September.
