Ready for an Ambush?

Rock band Ambush will be headlining the main stage at the 2023 Blackburn Hamlet Funfair on Saturday June 3.

Limited seats are available.  Online tickets are $25 and will be available at the door . . . if available

Famous for their live shows, Ambush has built an intensely loyal fan base in Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec. The Ambush Army is a quarter of a million fans strong and still growing! Performing to captivate crowds of all ages.

In 2006 Ambush was crowned champions of the CMT reality series “Plucked.” Being part of the series allowed the band to shoot their first ever video for the Country Music News top 20 song “This Could Be The Night.” In the show’s finale, Ambush garnered over 50% of the total fan votes cast in winning, which allowed the band to shoot a follow up video for their hauntingly beautiful song “In This Room.”

Ambush has been recognized by the Canadian music industry with multiple nominations for Canadian Country Music Association awards, including: Independent Group or Duo of the Year (2006). Independent Group or Duo of the Year (2007) & Group or Duo of the Year (2007).

Soon, the world will know what their legions of fans have known for years: Ambush is raw energy, sheer entertainment, and just plain fun!

Giving back to our community

Ever wonder where all that money spent on tickets, rides, food and everything else goes when you come to the Funfair?

A good portion of that revenue goes straight back to the community.

After paying for expenses, the 2022 Blackburn Funfair committee raised over $15,000 for local groups operating in Blackburn Hamlet.

All Funfair committee roles receive honorariums which can be donated to the charity of their choice. Have a group you cherish that could use some financial support? Volunteering with the Funfair might be a great way to help.

So next time you come to the fair – know that your financial support is helping provide support for those things closest to you in our community.
