THE PONTIAC AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY (better known as) SHAWVILLE FAIR
In the house of agriculture there are many rooms — and we like to think that Shawville Fair is an important room for all to visit, a chance to get back to our rural roots, and learn about where our food REALLY comes from.
PAS is a “society” of up to 30 dedicated, enthusiastic, and hardworking volunteers. These men and women work tirelessly to create a new and improved fair every year.
We are following in very large footprints. Very wise farmers started this event in 1856, with William Clarke as the first President. These men had great foresight, and the will to showcase local livestock. They did all these amazing things in difficult times with manual labour.
It is our duty and responsibility as modern day Directors to continue to dream as our ancestors did and to attend meetings and make informed decisions to improve the future of our Fair.
