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 October 3-4, 2015 the 158th 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. $1,586.00 was paid to elementary school aged children in 2014.
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 special summer BBQ with entertainment that will be announced, food booth at Norfolk County Fair and other festivals, 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 fair 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.
