The second weekend of the 257th Hants County Exhibition has been canceled due to the expected impact of Hurricane Fiona. The safety of attendees, exhibitors, vendors, livestock, and our volunteers and crew always comes first.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Please bear with us as we work out the details, and determine the possibility of rescheduling parts of the second weekend program. We are hopeful our demolition derby and the beef show can be moved to another date.
This decision was not taken lightly and was based on consultation with government officials and models from Environment Canada.
The smiling faces, and record crowd attending Saturday, September 17 will keep us motivated to plan the best Hants County Exhibition yet for 2023. Thanks to all who attended and see you next year.
Please join us !
September from the 16th-18th (Weekend 1)
September 23rd-25th (Weekend 2)

This Summer’s Events at The Fairgrounds! – We’ve got you covered!
Hants County Ex Farmers’ Market at the Fairgrounds
Welcome to our fairgrounds and the second running of the Hants County Farmers’ Market (HCFM). We are excited to once again host this weekly event.
Having refreshed our site plan for this season, we are able to present new opportunities for increased signage, indoor/ outdoor seating, and entertainment pavilions.
In offering a dedicated space for our vendors, we hope to engage with our community while gathering at a accessible location.
As we continue to embrace the principles of “make it, bake it, grow it”, we invite our community to come together and share in our regions bountiful bread basket. We hope you will join us for a successful 2022 Farmers’ Market season. On behalf of the Windsor Agriculture Society, we thank you for your continued support of our fairgrounds.
The Hants County Ex Farmers’ Market at the Fairgrounds is a project of the Not-for-Profit Windsor Agricultural Society.
The market, began in 2021 and is a member of the Farmers’ Markets of Nova Scotia Cooperative Ltd.
As a member we adhere to the same principle of “grow it, make it, or bake it”. The mission of the Market is to provide a direct market venue for producers of local goods and services to engage with the community in a convenient, and accessible location.
In 2022 the market will continue to be outdoors to better work with continuing restrictions surrounding Covid-19.
