In the year we celebrate the 150th anniversary in Richmond Hill, the “Spring Fair,” an annual tradition in the Richmond Hill community for 147 years will be back at Town Park on Saturday, May 20, 2023; the same location where the historic annual celebration of spring was held until 1985. The Fair moved to Richmond Green before ending in 1996. Deputy Mayor Godwin Chan invites you to join him from noon to 3 pm on May 20th at Town Park, 43 Church Street South.
Complimentary BBQ food (burgers and hot dogs) and ice cream cones will be served while quantities last. Richmond Hill’s antique 1924 fire truck will be on display. The family-oriented community event includes children’s activities, public and community services booths, and a live band performance. While Spring Fair in the earlier days listed prizes for horses and other livestock, the 2023 event has a door prize of a free weekend use of 2023 Lexus RX350.
Peter Wilson, Local History Librarian at Richmond Hill Public Library, will showcase their historic Spring Fair collections. In addition, the Ukrainian community will participate in the 2023 Spring Fair to perform and share their culture and welcome support to help newcomers who are in need. As well, St. John Ambulance will have their Community Food Truck to collect donations for the Richmond Hill Community Food Bank.
Bring along your family and friends along with non-perishable food items for donation to our local food bank and enjoy the community celebration of Spring 2023.
