WOW! Can’t believe our Alliston Potato Festival is 45 years young this year. Where does the time go?! We have another great year planned. The Committee, The Rotary and The ABIA have been very busy putting together a year full of events for you to enjoy. You will see some new events and as well our reliable popular attractions. Follow us on our website especially the Attractions tab. We are in the process of updating. Be sure to come down to the fairgrounds and get a selfie with our own Mr. Potato. See you at the festival!
