On March 17, 2020 the Province declared a State of Emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic, canceling the Rockton Dinner and World’s Fair for the first time, creating a unique time for the Society, and our community over the next two years.
During the pandemic, the Society created unique opportunities to engage and support our community, such as Car Purse Bingo, Drive-through Tractor Tour, Drive-through Meals and Agricultural Theme Displays. Later as health regulations shifted, a social distance Farmers Market was offered during the summer of 2021.
Rockton World’s Fair was excited to have our come back fair in 2022, with the theme of “Rekindling Traditions, Growing Together” and in April 2023 the Rockton Dinner Theatre returned, with Rockton’s Got Talent.
To ensure everyone can enjoy our large ring events, new wheelchair accessible grandstands were installed.
