F our generations of my family have been taking this annual trip to the big city to partake of the country life. and every year, I'm newly amazed at the freshness of the food, fun and faces. For 10 days at the start of the canadian winter, the Royal agricultural Winter Fair warms visitors in new and his- toric structures at Toronto's Exhibition Place. a great destination for exploring rural culture, it entices more than 300,000 visitors annually who include animal-lovers, foodies and competition junkies. "The Royal is the world's largest com- bined indoor agricultural and equestrian show," says Karen Poncelet, the Fair's man- ager of Marketing communications and community Relations. "It is more than just entertainment; it is also a unique learning experience, with 10 education centres offer- ing continuous agricultural programming and demonstrations geared to children, youth and adults." she points out that guests will find more than 5,000 animals, unique shopping, world-class competitions and five- star dining. 18 Fa l l 2 0 1 4
