Our Events

The Russell Fair is a wonderful 4-day event that celebrates its community’s agricultural heritage while providing a diverse array of family entertainment. Enjoy a pleasant country drive to our slice of rural heaven as we welcome you to take in all that we have to offer.  Not only are we proud to bring the Russell Fair to fruition each year, we also bring together 500 women for our annual Ladies Night fundraiser, we work with our local Lions Club to celebrate Canada Day and we also host our annual curling bonspiel to raise funds that go towards improving our facilities.
