Canadian Association of Fairs and Exhibitions
Canadian Association of Fairs and Exhibition
The Canadian Association of Fairs and Exhibitions (C.A.F.E.) is a non-profit organization established in 1924 and largely funded by membership fees. We represent Canadian rural fairs, urban exhibitions, agricultural societies, provincial associations, industry service providers, and affiliate associations, with a direct interest in the industry.
Mission: To provide leadership in the growth and development of the Canadian fair industry and deliver programs and services that benefit the community and members for the their long-term success as they redefine their future direction and role in the twenty-first century.
The mission of C.A.F.E. is to provide a national voice and leadership for the Canadian fair, festival and community events sector. Much like Canada itself, we are a diverse group. We engage our communities to deliver successful annual events and other programs.
C.A.F.E.'s efforts are focused on initiatives that help us do a better job to serve our communities, highlight new opportunities, and respond to issues that affect the way we do business. Through CAFE, we collectively demonstrate the social and economic benefits we provide, the great value and return for government and private investment. We make our communities, regions and Canada a better place if not the best place to live day in and day out. As an Association we continue to build on our strengths.
One of the best ways to strengthen and enhance the diversity of our industry is in sharing information and experiences. I hope you find the material presented on this website helpful. I encourage you to visit often and take advantage of the resources available.
