Welcome to our 43rd Annual Alliston Potato Festival ~ August 5, 6, 7, 2016

We are very busy putting the final touches on the 43rd Alliston Potato Festival. It promises to be another great year for both the main street activities and the attractions at the fairgrounds.

Of course our famous parade (organized by our Alliston Rotary Club) will be kicking everything off at 7PM on the Friday evening. For those poker lovers, we have Texas Hold'em at the Alliston Memorial Arena again this year. The main street will play host to a number of buskers each showing of their own unique skills, the fairgrounds will come alive with the midway, the outdoor vendor market and the live entertainment at the beer gardens.

Throughout the weekend there will be many attractions from the antique car show on the main street, to the baby show, the baseball tournament, the dog agility show, the Wrestling Show, the Scottish dancers, the belly dancers to name a few. See the Attractions tab on our website for complete information on events at the fairgrounds.

Happy Potato Festival weekend. Come out and be part of the community. Enjoy our 43rd Annual Alliston Potato Festival!
