From November 4 to 13, 2016, the 94th Royal Agricultural Winter Fair takes over Exhibition Place in downtown Toronto.
With indoor equestrian competitions, prize-winning cattle, local agriculture, food and beer, the fair attracts visitors in and outside of agriculture.
"The Royal is a spectacle, a celebration and a stage for competition among the best of what Canada offers the rest of the world," said Charlie Johnstone, chief executive officer of The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair, in a release. "From Olympic champions who strive for show jumping perfection to farmers who proudly compete to be recognized as the country's best in agriculture, visitors are guaranteed an immersion in a truly amazing, not to mention, fun and educational experience."
In addition to classic events like rodeo, show jumping and chef challenges, a number of new attractions are being introduced to help enhance the visitor experience.
For music lovers, some of Canada’s newest country acts, including Vanessa Marie Carter, Jesse Gold and Robyn Ottolini, will be on hand as part of the Boots and Hearts Music Festival.
If fine dining is of interest, Canadian celebrity chef Michael Bonacini will host a four-course meal using ingredients from Royal competitors.
Looking to dance the night away? The Colt Walker band will help kick off the first ever Royal Barn Dance in the new Ring of Excellence.
