The Woodstock Agricultural Society proudly supports and promotes the diversity of agriculture at its annual fair. From the exhibition halls and barns, to the Agricultural Building, Barnyard Babies Birthing Center and the Brunn Barn Complex, the fairgrounds are brimming with locally grown and raised.
The Open Horse Show is one of the largest multi-day horse shows in the area with over 250 classes held from Friday afternoon until Monday afternoon with 3 show rings of activity. The broad spectrum of classes offered throughout the weekend has something for everyone.
Food and Shopping
Whether you are looking for an old fashioned bowl of chowder from one of our non-profit vendors or a new fangled sweet dessert to eat, you can find it among the 100 or so food concessions at our fair. We offer a wide variety of foods and like to think if you canít find at least ten things here.
