Though not a fair, if you are interested in celebrating agriculture in Durham Region, Durham Farm Connections will be hosting its 4th annual gala to raise and benefit agricultural awareness efforts in the region on October 26, 2017. Those in the agricultural community are invited to come out and support the cause all while enjoying delicious food and entertainment. There will be a silent and live auction and attendees will have a chance to connect with others in the community. In tribute to Canada’s 150th milestone birthday, the gala will also celebrate Durham farm families that have been farming for at least 150 years in Canada and currently in Durham Region. What an honour! More details to follow. For more information visit: https://durhamfarmconnections.ca/celebrate-agriculture-gala/
