We have been to Western fair several times, a very enjoyable day out for all the family, one of the must venues to visit when in London Ontario.

I ignored all the above reviews because I am a devout harness racing fan. I have to say this is a 'has been' place. I wish I had not wasted my time. I do not recommend a visit here.

Hadn't been to the Western Fair for a LONG time. It was a waste of time and money. First of all a dumpy parking lot where they squeezed cars in like sardines, glad we didn't get a ding in our car! It was all midway and shopping, very little agriculture or other things to see. The agriculture building was very... More

I stopped in here after buying YukYuk tickets. It's not a very nice building, and there are only slot machines and video machines to play. No blackjack tables, no poker, no baccarat, no dice, no roulette. You have to pay for drinks while you gamble AND IT'S DECORATED LIKE 1985. The general feeling is drab and dull. I was completely...

Spent some time at the Food and Wine show hosted by the Western Fair this weekend. I have been before but thought this year was the best by a mile, huge improvement over previous years. Far more to see and do than ever before, kudo's to Gerry LaHay and his team for a well organized, greatly improved show.

If you thought it was bad in 2012, try it now. It just gets worse and worse. Be prepared to lose $300 straight in a PENNY machine. Only a few machines pay out jackpots and they are usually the same ones. I agree with the previous reviewer. You can lose $300 in one machine and try betting the maximum in... More

This Casino is a waste of your time; very, very poor payouts and getting worse. I recently had $100.00 US Bill and cashed it in at the cashiers wicket and received 0% exchange. When I bought the funds it cost approx. $4.00 CDN. Petty thieves- I contacted a Supervisor and complained how unfair this was. She, Kara, later tracked me... More

Go for fun, find a machine you enjoy playing and does not take your money to fast. The slots area is usually full of people who are not there to have fun but to win it all. This does not make for a lively place of people enjoying themselves. But try to ignore them and have a fun time. The... More
