Aberdeen Pavilion - The Glebe BIA

Aberdeen Pavilion

Aberdeen Pavilion is a unique historical site located in the centre of Lansdowne Park. Built in 1898 for the Central Canada Exhibition Association, it is a rare example of a Victorian exhibition hall in Canada. For many years, the building was nicknamed the “Cattle Castle” for its primary function displaying livestock during agriculture shows. The pavilion is named after former Governor General, Lord Aberdeen, who was a dedicated supporter of the agricultural fair movement. Today, the pavilion is used for special events, including 613flea, CityFolk Festival, and the Lansdowne Farmer’s Market in the winter months.
