There are so many wonderful things about fall. Yet, one of the best things to do on a crisp fall weekend is to head out to one of the local fairs. Midway rides, fair food, vendors and entertainment are all things that can keep you entertained for the entire weekend. Luckily, the Markham Fair is happening this weekend, and as Canada's biggest four day fair, there are so many exciting things that you can do. 

The Markham Fair will be coming to the GTA from October 3 until October 6 and offers four days of mouth-watering food, amazing entertainment, and competitions that you don't want to miss out on.

Not only is the fair the biggest four day fair in Canada, but it's also one of the oldest. The fair, which has been happening since 1844, has been offering a variety of events for 175 years. 

As Canada's biggest fair there is so much to do, that we couldn't possibly begin to tell you the best of it. However, there are a few things that you don't want to miss. 

The fair will be featuring a variety of midway rides, making it the ultimate fair experience. Whether you want to have a kiss on the top of the Ferris wheel, or see how many rides you can go on before you want to puke, this fair is the perfect place to soak it all in. 

Once you get tired of the rides, you can head on over to one of the many entertainments shows that the fair has to offer. With a Monster Truck show, gymnastics, dog shows, and sheep shearing, there is an event for everyone. 

You can even spot some breathtaking fireworks at dusk every evening!

There are also a variety of vendors and food stands that you can explore while wandering the fairgrounds. You can browse through some local vendors to find some amazing trinkets and keepsakes, all while munching on your favourite fair snack. 

There are also a variety of competitions that you can enter if you think that you have what it takes to go against some of the best. 

Enter your baked goods, livestock or art into the fair competitions for a chance to win a prize! 

The fair will be running all weekend long, so you have plenty of time to enjoy the amazing festivities that it has to offer. To view a full list of events you can visit their website here. 

The admission price for the fair is $20.00 a day. However, if you're planning on going more than once, you can get a 4-day passport for only $28.00.
