President’s Message

Hello Fair Family and Friends

What an honour it is to be serving as the 160th President of the Comber Fair. As your 2019 President, I am very excited about all the new sights and sounds that will be enjoyed at this year’s fair! With fireworks, a new midway, pony rides, dog show, axe throwing, chainsaw carving, birds of prey demonstration with a meet and greet, and a train to take kids around the park are just a few of the new additions for this year.

We, as a group of volunteers, strive to bring our knowledge and experience to every part of your fair. We feel that it is important to share our expertise about where food comes from as well as maybe inspire the next generation to do their part and get involved in agriculture! After all, the main reason this event started 160 years ago was to enable area farmers to trade seeds and livestock with each other.

In closing, I would like to thank the many directors, junior directors, volunteers, exhibitors, community groups, local businesses and, of course, you! Join us this year to enjoy the sights, the sounds, the smells, and the fellowship of the fair.


Ian Pearce
2019 President
