Uxbridge Fall Fair opens Sept. 8


DARRYL KNIGHT The Standard UXBRIDGE: One of North Durham's great autumn traditions, the Uxbridge Fall Fair returns to Elgin Park this weekend, with a full slate of activities under the theme of 'We've Got a Good Thing Growing' from Friday, Sept. 8 to Sunday, Sept. 10.

A significant change this year is the policy of no backpacks allowed, although there are exceptions for clear bags or diaper bags if patrons are accompanied by an infant. According to a press release, the policy was introduced “in the interest of public safety and well-being of our valued patrons.”

Renowned as an arts community, local performers take the stage throughout the weekend at the Rotary Club Bandshell, including a youth talent show at 5 p.m. on Friday night, as well as three performances by illusionist Lucas Wilson on Saturday.

The tractor pull is the main attraction on Friday night, and it roars to life at 7 p.m. On Saturday night, the demolition derby gets underway at 7 p.m.

Town Trolley has expanded their shuttle service this year, from 5 to 10 p.m. on Friday, and 5 to 11 p.m. on Saturday, with pick-up and drop-off points at Body Fit, Uxbridge Secondary School, Herrema Fields and the Arena.

Admission on Friday and Sunday is $15 for those over 14, $10 for seniors and visitors between 6 and 13, with under 5 admitted free. A family pass is available for $40 and includes admission for 2 adults and two kids (6 to 13).

On Saturday, admission is $20 for adults and $15 for senior and kids 6 to 13, kids under 5 are still free. The Saturday family pass is $60 for two adults and two kids (6 to 13). Admission includes entry to the tractor pull, demolition derby and all other demonstrations and exhibits. Visa and debit cards will be accepted at all gates.
