The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair is a show like no other. Nothing compares with the multiple layers of sight, sound, smell and taste that make up The Royal Experience. It's a part of Canadian tradition. It's the place where entertainment meets education. Where the thrill of competition meets the pride of accomplishment. Where the country shows the city a thing or two. It is the largest indoor combined agricultural, horticultural, canine and equestrian event in the world.
