With all the wonderful and exciting fairs and festivals that take place throughout the year in our region, I thought it might be helpful to put together a list of some of the best and most popular events. I'm sure I've missed some, so if you have suggestions to add, please leave a comment or send me an email. Here are some upcoming events in our region that you won't want to miss!
