As the COVID-19 virus continues to spread across Canada, we have made the difficult decision to close The Roller Skating Place effective March 16 until further notice, following the advice of Canada’s public health authorities.
We will continue to monitor the situation and keep everyone posted as more information becomes available. Sorry for any inconvenience. We look forward to reopening our doors as soon as possible.
ORILLIA FALL FAIR 2020
With heavy hearts the Orillia & District Agricultural Society Board of Directors announces the cancellation of the 2020 Orillia Fall Fair which was scheduled to be held September 11-13, 2020. It should have been a banner year for us as we celebrate our 170th year.
This decision was made using information currently available from our Province. The safety and well-being of our community, our visitors, vendors, exhibitors, and our volunteers is at the forefront of this heartbreaking decision.
The Orillia Fall Fair loves bringing our community together to celebrate and promote agriculture. We will be working on ways to continue to do so outside of the annual fair environment. We encourage you to watch our social media to stay up to date.
We would like to thank our volunteers, sponsors, exhibitors, and vendors who have supported us over the past 169 years, and we can't wait to see you for next years fair on September 10-12, 2021.

Orillia and District Agricultural Society is saddened to announce the passing of Alice Stamper after a long and valiant fight with cancer. Alice is known by so many as she was the Roller Rink manager for many years and involved in so many organizations in Orillia. Our thoughts are with Alice's family and her very wide circle of friends. You were loved and respected by many. RIP dear Alice.
