"It was an unanimous decision by our committee to move PoultryFest Niagara to the new exhibition facilities built by the West Niagara Agricultural Society at Mud Street and Regional Road 12", said Jim Koornneef, Vice President of PoultryFest.
"There are many reasons for this decision and foremost is that we want to take advantage of the great new facility we have in West Lincoln. It will increase our permanent indoor exhibition space by four times and give us unlimited outdoor space as well."
Albert Witteveen, General Manager of the West Niagara Agricultural Society said, "Our Board is thrilled to welcome PoultryFest. This will give us 2 premier agricultural events at Niagara's newest premier event space. One in the spring and one in the fall."
PoultryFest will remain a sponsor-driven event with the goal of providing Free Family Fun to its visitors. The new grounds will allow PoultryFest to try new events and put a fresh face on the festival, which is entering its 17th year.
A bus service run from several points in downtown Smithville - to shuttle visitors out to the West Niagara Agricultural Centre. This service will be free and run all day.
