The Old Lindsay Fairgrounds
January 16, 2022
The Newton Wilson Pavillion was one of those under appreciated local landmarks, the kind of place that few people realized how many memories were created there until it was gone. For a lot of people, the bright orange building was something you couldn’t when visiting the town.
The Lindsay Agricultural Society opened in 1854, and from 1883 to 2006 the exhibition was held at the grounds between Colborne, Adelaide and Angeline Streets. Over the years the Newton Wilson Pavillion has hosted countless exhibitions, 4-H shows and many other community events.
What memories do you have of the old Lindsay Fairgrounds?
