Montreal Families

Families invited to fall festival in Ormstown

If you’ve lived in the Montreal-area all your life, you’ve likely heard about Expo Ormstown, a 107-year-old agricultural fair that welcomes more than 18,000 visitors every summer. At this event, visitors can enjoy livestock exhibitions and many children’s activities.

This year, the Livestock Breeders Association (LBA), with the goal of promoting and educating people about agriculture, horticulture and animal welfare, will be hosting a fall festival at Expo Ormstown on September 29 and 30.

On Saturday, September 30, the gates to the fairgrounds open at 10 a.m. and the entrance fee is $15 for those 5 and up. There will be plenty of kids’ activities, including a 10-acre corn maze, face painting, a haunted house and a magic show.

Hot air balloon rides will also be available ($50 for people aged 5 and over).

At the Huntingdon farmers market, families can purchase locally-grown products. Representatives from local wineries and breweries will be selling their products as well.

A Great Pumpkin Commonwealth (GPC) weigh-off will also be taking place. A panel of judges will determine the winner of the biggest pumpkin competition. For your pumpkin to qualify, it must be healthy, not have any rot, holes, cracks or soft spots. Last year’s winner weighed 1,636 pounds.

On September 29, keynote speaker Michelle Miler, also known as Farm Babe, will give a presentation. A social media influencer and a writer, she will talk about a variety of topics, including modern farming, facts about food to help you with your grocery shopping, as well as food production. Tickets cost $40 and will include a cocktail. The event takes place from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Ormstown is location about one our southwest of Montreal.
