Welcome to Vermilion Agricultural Society

The Vermilion Agricultural Society is pleased to present the 111th Annual Vermilion Fair:  July 27, 28, 29, 2017.

Events include a parade, trade show, animal judging, Pony Chuck wagon and chariot races, entertainment and agricultural/horticultural displays. Each year several thousand exhibitors showcase their talents in a friendly competitive spirit.

The Vermilion Agricultural Society is a 'not for profit' organization run by volunteers. Endless hours of work and organization by the volunteers that comprise the society membership, the committee members, the exhibitors and the many additional volunteers who step up at fair time and of course the long hours of hard work by our office staff; bring this event to fruition. Without the support and hard work of this group of people, such a feat would not be possible. The Society continues to work hard to make changes to our Fair in order to make it informative, educational and of course fun for families and all who attend.


Each year society members choose a theme to represent the fair. For 2017 we have selected the theme: 

"100 years of 4-H in Alberta"

Fairboard of the Year Award

The Vermilion Agricultural Society was the proud recipient of the 2015 Fairboard of the Year Award presented by the Alberta Professional Chuckwagon & Chariot Association.

Vermilion Agricultural Society's involvement with APCCA has been one that has endured for a number of years and we greatly appreciate the contribution they make to our fair.

Vermilion Agricultural Society previously received the 2013 Fairboard of the Year Award presented by the Alberta Professional Chuckwagon & Chariot Association.

The Vermilion Agricultural Society congratulates Alberta 4-H on the occassion of celebrating "100 years of 4-H in Alberta".  The organizations motto of "Learn to do by Doing" and their philosophy    "4-H is young people and adults learning project and life skills, cooperating and having fun together sharing leadership and learning to do by doing" has over the past 100 years given young Albertans the skills and confidence to be successfull contributing members of society.
