Since 1922, The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair has been Canada’s premier showcase for excellence in livestock, crops and food products such as honey, maple, jams and jellies. For professional farmers, a win at The Royal can grow your business. Successful home canners and cooks can earn bragging rights for years to come. Join this proud Royal tradition and enter your stock or food item at the 2019 Fair. We look forward to crowning this year’s Royal Champions.
The Royal introduced live streaming of all cattle shows in 2016 and we are thrilled to report the broadcast was seen in 32 countries. We will continue this promotional activity in 2019 to grow our world-wide audience.

The 97th Royal Agricultural Winter Fair celebrates excellence in agriculture, food products and equine sport. This annual event welcomes exhibitors of many different livestock breeds and agricultural products excited to compete for championship titles, conduct business and interact with their colleagues. The Royal also welcomes thousands of spectators eager to explore and learn about agriculture and food and interact with producers. On behalf of The Royal’s staff, volunteers and Board of Directors, I would like to welcome all exhibitors to the 97th Royal. As the current President and Chairman of The Board I am thrilled to preside over our 2019 Fair.
The 2018 Fair was a great year for agriculture competitions. Our investment in Livestock Barn improvements was noteworthy, allowing for a high class exhibitor experience. We saw an increase in our overall agriculture numbers and are encouraged for the future of our competitions across the board.
The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair is a great Canadian tradition – now 97 years young. By competing in The Royal, you are part of our tradition — and part of our future. I wish you every success in the Royal competition of your choice in 2019. We appreciate your participation and your loyalty. Rest assured that we continue to work hard to create a best-in-class experience for you. We look forward to seeing you at The Royal.
Good luck to everyone and we will see you in the show ring!
