Joanne Pauli Mayfair Chair

Joanne Pauli

Mayfair 2017 will be on Saturday, May 13th in Rosedale Park. This will be my ninth year as Chair of the event, and our plan is to have an incredibly sunny spring day!

Also, don’t miss the “Mayfair’s Eve Preview.” On the Friday evening before Mayfair, plan to bring the family to the park, enjoy the rides, and stay for dinner and a drink under the big tents in the Beer Garden. It won’t be as hectic as the full Mayfair event on Saturday, and it’ll be a great time to meet up with old friends.

Birthday cake for Canada's 150th!

This year we’ll be celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday!  We’ll have great bands on the main stage, both Friday night and on Saturday. We’ll have lots of rides, lots of midway games, and tons of fun. The layout we worked out with Worlds Finest Shows lets us get some of their really big rides into Rosedale Park, without putting heavy machinery onto the soccer pitch. Ride-all-Day passes will be on sale at Summerhill Market from April 24 until May 10.

We’re looking forward to a really successful Beer Garden with our friends at Steam Whistle Brewing. And our BBQ crew will have an enhanced “food court” for their Webers burgers, Greenfield all-natural hot dogs, great condiments from Neal Brothers, and other delights.

I know the day will be a big success… It’s the result of hundreds of volunteers joining to put on a fun party for the entire community. The proceeds go to Mooredale House, which plays such a big role in the lives of kids and adults in the area.

Mayfair is a wonderful event, and if you have never made it before, try to get there this year. James and I would love to catch up with old friends, so if you don’t see us, just ask around the Baking Booth and someone will know where we are!
