The cool crisp mornings and the breathtaking colors of the leaves are sure signs that the summer is ending and fall is upon us. Canadians have an exceptional way to celebrate this beginning of a new season with its abundance of fall fairs. Fall fairs have been around for hundreds of years and what started as a way to celebrate the rural life has grown into fairs that feature midways, incredible horsemanship and yet still retain that small town charm. From the east coast to the west, we have rounded up the 12 best fall fairs in all of Canada.
