The most popular events at each fair are the demolition derbies. These were sponsored for a long time by the Horsepower Unlimited Car Club from Simcoe but are now sponsored by the Vittoria & St. Williams Fire Department Auxiliaries. 2017 will be 44th consecutive year of demolition derbies. They will be using many volunteers that are familiar with derbies.

About Donnybrook Fair
The Donnybrook Fair in Walsh, Ontario is an annual two day event, held at 1258 Turkey Point Rd. The fair has been held every year from 1857 until the present, making September 23 -24, 2017 the 160th Fair. This September event involves the children of Walsh Public School, St. Michael’s School, and other neighboring schools as well as the home schooled.
Children enter their arts, crafts and locally grown agricultural commodities to compete for prize money and ribbons. $1,500.00 was paid to elementary school aged children in 2016.
The fair has grown every year with the help of many volunteers. Fund raising events are held all year to finance the fair. These events include a food booth, and numerous raffles. We also own a commercial stage which is rented out to local events.
Don’t forget our mobile food booth, built by our volunteers. Enjoy our food at the fairs and other events.
Throughout the year, the fairgrounds and the Walsh Hall are frequently used for weddings, funerals, Country music jamborees, Zumba classes and meetings. The name “Donnybrook Fair” comes from an early settler of Walsh, who said the fair reminded him of an annual horse fair in Donnybrook, Dublin.
