The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair, colloquially called The Royal, is an annual fall fair in Toronto, Ontario, which takes place over two weeks in November. Inaugurated in 1922 and originally housed in the Coliseum, on the grounds of Exhibition Place, the event has expanded to the Direct Energy National Trade Centre and remains an important exhibit for livestock breeders.

Each content page includes an image slider with pop-up, description, and social media integrations.

The events page has print friendly functionality as well as the ability to view the schedule as a PDF.
