support-the-cobble-hill-fairThe Cobble Hill Fair is organized by the Farmers Institute at Cobble Hill. This organization is comprised of volunteers who are, among other things, committed to providing a fun, educational and wholesome country fair for all to enjoy.

Organizing the fair, along with the upkeep of Farmers Institute facilities, not only requires many volunteers, but also brings substantial financial expenses. We are, therefore, very grateful for the financial support we receive from our sponsors. Without the support of our community, we would not be able to organize and host this annual event.

Here is how you can support the Cobble Hill Fair and the continuation of this tradition that is more than a century old:

Become a Corporate Sponsor

Corporate sponsorship starts at $150.00. All our corporate sponsors are recognized in our catalogue and on the fair grounds.
