Dryden and District Agriculture Society is one of six fairs in the District 15 region. Other fairs include Canadian Lakehead Exhibition, Hymers, Murillo, Rainy River Valley District and Kenora.. Representatives from each fair meet annually in the fall to discuss our common fair interests and concerns. Butter Tarts, Chocolate Chip, Poster, and Quilt winners from each fair are judged at this meeting to determine the District winners.
We are also a member of the Ontario Association of Agricultural Societies (O.A.A.S.). In February. the OAAS. hosts its annual convention. Delegates to this meeting may take the district competition winning exhibits for provincial competition.
