Agriculture Is The Beginning

Woodstock Agricultural Society Receives OESF Grant

August 11th, 2020

The Woodstock Agricultural Society is excited and honored to be a successful $25,000 applicant for the Oxford County Economic Stimulus Fund Grant. Like most businesses in Oxford County, COVID-19 had a huge impact on the Society and the various vendors, customers and community organizations that relied on our Woodstock Fairground facilities. We had to close and many of the events and fundraisers held in our buildings cancelled. This impacted not only our bottom line, but that of many organizations’ income from events held here.

We recognize that physical distancing will remain a part of our new economic reality. The monies received from this grant will address our need to adapt our facilities to allow the bigger events to proceed with a closer to normal capacity in a safe manner and create opportunities for our community to use our facilities both indoor and outdoor for small and medium size events that may require more space than they would have previously.

With the OCES Grant, we will be able to reopen our facilities to our community partners benefitting not only us but many businesses across Oxford County.
