There is also a large selection of exhibits, crafts, quilts and goods to take in as well.

DuPuis notes that the Little Royal Fair is steeped in rich agricultural tradition and it is her hope that the Fair's Field to Fork Display will provide youth with a better understanding and a deeper appreciation for the role farmers pay in our lives.

The Walkerton Little Royal is the last Fall Fair in the Province to take place leading up to Toronto's Royal Agricultural Winter Fair.

Over the years the Walkerton Little Royal Fair has faced various weather challenges from rain and sleet to snow and frigid temperatures.

However this year, Dupuis says the sun is shining and it is turning out to be one of the nicest weekend's for the fair yet.

She encourages families to drop by the Fair and take in the exhibits, the shows and partake in activities and food.
