The Ayer’s Cliff Fair, one of Quebec’s oldest agricultural fairs, had been running annually since 1845 until the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. Last year would have marked its 175th anniversary. However, due to uncertainty around public health measures, the event has now been postponed for two years in a row.
As a non-profit community organization, the long-term success of the Ayer’s Cliff Fair would not have been possible without the support of countless dedicated volunteers in the community, particularly the president, two vice-presidents, and the board of directors, which is comprised of 17 directors and a secretary-treasurer.
This summer, Ayer’s Cliff Fair’s appreciation of its generous volunteers is being highlighted with the creation of Volunteer Park, which is located at the entrance of the fairgrounds.
