Harvesting excitement is what we do best every September since 1858 in the pleasant rural village of Russell where the tradition of agricultural and home craft exhibits is complemented by our midway, truck and tractor pulls, a demolition derby and daily live entertainment for young and the young at heart. This year's Friday night concert features two of Canada's best tribute bands - The Road Apples, Canada's premiere tribute to The Tragically Hip and The Summer of '69, playing of the hits of Bryan Adams. It's all taking place under a massive tent on the fair grounds. This year's highlights: expanded craft beer fest, live pro wrestling, aerial acrobatics show and the ever-popular demolition derbies (including a kids version!). Come join us! We’re only minutes on the 417 east of Ottawa.
