The Carp Fair, known as the “best little fair in Canada” is only two weeks away from its 148th annual event.
This year, the fair board decided against hiring a promoter to book the entertainment, and did it entirely themselves – something that hasn’t been done in years.
Chad Findlay is one of the entertainment organizers for the fair. A Kinburn resident, Findlay’s been attending the fair since birth but has been involved behind-the-scenes for the past seven years.
“It’s been a bit of a learning curve,” he said, “But it’s a great opportunity for the fair.”
Judging from their stellar music and entertainment lineup, you wouldn’t know a thing had changed.
This is one of the first years where big American acts are part of the lineup, instead of keeping it Canadian.
