It’s time to dust off your cowboy boots and hats! The Budweiser County Fair will be here before you know it.

Taking place in the heart of the city, this year’s fair will be bigger and better than before, taking over Toronto’s Fort York Historic Site for two epic days of country fun.

Country boys and girls can look forward to line dancing, a mechanical bull, pie-eating contests, carnival games, a southern BBQ, classical carnival eats, and new this year is Muskoka’s famous Weber’s burgers.

The main attraction? None other than live entertainment from homegrown talent, including Canada’s hottest up-and-coming country artists who will be taking over the main stage with exclusive performances.
