President’s message


2017 marks the year of another great exhibition being planned by the directors of Crapaud Exhibition.  Special events are being featured in addition to those we have on a regular basis.  Our sixty fourth annual exhibition will honor the 150th anniversary celebration of the birth of this great country.

We extend the warmest welcome to those who regularly attend our events and to visitors who wish to experience a county fair that showcases aspects of our agricultural community and life in rural PEI.

This year we are pleased to welcome the Mi’kmaq community through our funding from Canada 150.  This helps us celebrate 150 years of Canadian diversity.  The day-long activities will focus on diversity, reconciliation, environment, education and youth in this great country from the Mi’kmaq perspective.

Each year we attempt to offer a new challenge to bakers and this year it is the traditional walnut cake that was often used as a wedding cake many years ago. A sample recipe is provided on our website ( and it is to be presented as a naked cake which is the newest term used for cakes with no icing.

The annual exhibition will be held on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, July28th, 29th, and 30th.  The annual PEI Truck and Tractor Pull Competition will be held the following weekend on Friday, August 4 and Saturday, August 5, with a rain date of Sunday, August 6, 2017.

We hope you plan to spend some time at our fair.        

 R. Elmer MacDonald,   President
