Back in 1975, to help promote the growing sense of community pride, the City of Gloucester, created the “Gloucester Festival of Friends”.   The summer-time event became a volunteer driven program and then applied for and was granted Ontario Agricultural status by Minister of Agriculture, Dennis Timbrell on November 27, 1984, creating the Gloucester Fair.

The Fair drew great crowds to the original fairgrounds at the Earl Armstrong Arena but that success caused it to eventually outgrow the site.  Searching for a larger space, the Fair was invited to the Rideau Carleton Entertainment Centre where it has flourished since 1998.

For 10 fabulous days in August, there’s a lot to see and do at the Capital Fair.

Now, the Capital Fair is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the region. The fair attracts upwards of 100,000 guests annually.
