Come experience agriculture and animals like never before. With over 4000 animals coming and going all 10 days The Royal barns are not to be missed. Add that to Butter Sculptures, Giant Vegetables, Maple Syrup, and Cheese and it’s no surprise that The Royal is the premier showcase of agriculture in Canada. 







The Royal is also the home to the Canadian Agriculture Hall of Fame. The Canadian Agricultural Hall of Fame Association honours and celebrates Canadians for outstanding contributions to the agriculture and food industry. The important achievements of the CAHF inductees are presented in the Canadian Agricultural Hall of Fame Portrait Gallery located at the Royal Agriculture Winter Fair.
