On Thursday, November 5th, media are invited to shoot some behind-the-scenes footage, conduct interviews with everyone from The Royal's chief executive to the Rodeo Ringmaster to gourmet chef. Whether it is cattle being primped and fritted or a last-minute sweep of The Soy House, media are guaranteed to capture the thrill and excitement of getting ready for The Royal Opening Ceremony.

On Friday, November 6th from 8:30 am to 9:45 am, The Royal will open its doors and offer free admission to celebrate the arrival of The Royal Couple, as well as the Fair's opening ceremony. Royal watchers will also be treated to equestrian entertainment including a performance by The Canadian Cowgirls.

The largest of its kind in the world, The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair is an experiential event that takes place in Toronto every November at Exhibition Place.
