Royal is on again

The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair is on again and with a big party to celebrate its 100th anniversary.

The fair will be from Nov. 4 to 13 in Toronto.

The party begins with a dinner in Heritage Court for 1,000 guests followed by a Royal Showcase in Coca-Cola Stadium featuring comedian Rick Mercer.

“Since 1922, The Royal has celebrated the very best of what Canada has to offer through world-class competitions, interactive education and inspiring entertainment,” said Charlie Johnstone, chief executive officer.

“This year’s Royal promises to be truly special as we celebrate ‘A Century of Champions’, creating exceptional and unforgettable experiences for all those who compete, exhibit and attend the Royal.”

The Royal Showcase will also have the RCMP Musical Ride, St. Andrew’s College Pipes and Drums, Ontario’s first poet laureate and Blue Rodeo.
