The Agrifair grounds will also include roving entertainment such as clowns, balloon artists, Tristan the Kite Flyer, and magician Gary Savard.

Featured on the main stage will be Celebrating Diversity on Friday night, a Battle of the Bands on Saturday followed by headliner Jojo Mason on Saturday, and headliner Citizen Way on Sunday.

The fair also features 4H shows and competitions all weekend, as well as antique farm machinery displays and demos, the Country Horse Classic, the Mobile Dairy Classroom and the Poultry in Motion mini barn.

The RCMP Musical Ride performs Friday at 3 p.m., Saturday at 12:30 and 4:30 p.m., and Sunday at 3 p.m.
