Mayfair Overview

This year we are celebrating the 73th annual Mayfair in Rosedale Park. Since its inception, Mayfair has been a team effort and I want to thank the Mayfair Committee for their continued hard work of preparations for this year’s event. Our preview evening hours have changed to enhance your peace of mind. Come join us – it’s a great way to sample all the rides, food and drinks, and enjoy some great rock and roll at the beer garden.

What to Expect – FRIDAY:

·         AMAZING RIDES! Stomach-churning thrills for the big customers, as well as starter excitement for smaller folk! Experience some of Canada’s greatest carnival rides in Rosedale Park courtesy of World’s Finest Shows.

·         Friday BBQ the special dinner menu Friday includes the famous ribs from Summerhill Market. They are always a treat and sell out every year so come early!

·         Main Stage Entertainment on Friday night only – Governor Douglas performs, back by popular demand

·         BONUS! Redeem your World’s Finest Shows Rides Voucher for your Ride-all-Day Bracelet on Friday evening, and use it both days for many hours of riding fun (4 pm to 7:30 pm Friday, plus all day Saturday)!

What to Expect – SATURDAY:

·         AMAZING RIDES! If you didn’t redeem your ride voucher on Friday night, you can redeem the ride voucher all day Saturday until 4pm and enjoy the rides, using your ride bracelet. If you don’t have a ride bracelet, just buy Mayfair Tickets from the sellers in the park to go on the rides and play the midway games all day long.

Each year, Mayfair has two purposes: it’s a fundraiser for Mooredale and also a neighbourhood fair that strengthens connections in our community. We look forward to seeing you at Mayfair 2019.

I encourage you to be part of the team for Mayfair 2019, and call Mooredale at 416-922-3714, ext. 310, or email volunteer@mooredale.on.ca.  We’d love to have you join us! Many hands make lighter work.
