London was no exception to this; the city of London, Ontario decided to establish an annual autumn agricultural fair of their own even before the demise of the travelling Provincial Agricultural Fair of Canada West.
The Western Fair was first held in September, , northeast of Victoria Park. Like the Provincial Agricultural Fair, it was held on the grounds of the Crystal Palace Barracks, a British military garrison in Downtown London.
The Crystal Palace Barracks were first built in , in the same year that the second instance of London hosting the Provincial Agricultural Fair occurred.
The Crystal Palace itself was a white brick building shaped like an octagon, with a door allowing entry through each one of its eight sides.
In addition to the doors, the Crystal Palace featured 48 windows along the second floor of the structure. The original Crystal Palace Barracks is long since gone.
George Durand, the winner, designed a building with thirteen high circular arches and extremely large windows.
The only period of time in which the Western Fair was not held at the grounds now known as the Western Fair District was between and , when the District was appropriated by the Department of National Defence to be used as a centre for recruitment and training of soldiers during the Second World War.
The Western Fair has long been a place to showcase technology and the change of culture. Night exhibitions were implemented that year, with the exhibits lit with what was, near the end of the 19 th Century, cutting-edge technology: incandescent light bulbs.
In the Western Fair brought London its first art gallery. By the Western Fair needed to figure out a way to deal with an influx of a new, obnoxious problem: how to find places to park both horse-driven and motor-driven vehicles.
In , one of the most attended attractions was a fully-stocked bomb shelter; five years after the USSR had tested a nuclear bomb, this showed that the Western Fair had its finger on the pulse of what people were most concerned about.
In addition to technology, cultural change has often been reflected in the Western Fair. When the fair first moved in , people living in the city of London wrote letters to the editor of the London Free Press to complain that the Fair was oriented too much toward farmers and breeders, and did not have enough items of interest for the average urban dweller of the s.
This can be seen as an echo of the struggle between the traditional economic base of rural agriculture and the growing force of urban manufacturing.
During the Great Depression of the s, the Fair Board convinced the city to let married men on government relief attend the Fair for free.
The debate over this reflected a number of societal concerns at the time; some on the Fair Board expressed concern that giving such people free passes would condition them to expect free passes, while others on the Fair Board suggested that married men on government relief should also be given the first chance at taking on part-time jobs building and running the Western Fair.
In , finally acquiescing, the Fair briefly went alcohol-free. The Western Fair typically begins on the Friday of the second full week of September, and ends on the following Sunday, operating for ten days of fun and competition.
There are a number of features that draw in patrons from London and elsewhere, each of which will be examined in brief. Music has always been a major focus of attraction at the Western Fair.
The Fair has attracted a rich combination of local talent and big-name acts from Canada and abroad. In the s, the Fair attracted a series of cutting-edge Canadian alt-rock acts like Moist, the Headstones, the Tea Party, and Wide Mouth Mason.
In the modern era, the Fair brings in a wider variety of acts to appeal to as many Fair patrons as possible. The edition of the Fair brought newer, flashier acts like Fefe Dobson and Lights together with established acts like Hanson and Loverboy; put eclectic Ontario rapper Shad together with classic rock aficionados The Sheepdogs and actual classic rockers Glass Tiger.
In , the Fair tried going in a different direction, partnering with Live Nation to bring big acts to London for outdoor concerts outside of the Fair time.
The flagship effort of this was a Van Halen show on August 5 th , ; the outsized expenditures associated with this , however, convinced the Fair to return to big-draw concerts during the Fair again in , bringing and LOCASH.
