It is held on the grounds of Exhibition Place, where the iconic Coliseum was built for the inaugural fair-in fact, the fair's grand opening was originally planned for 1921 but it was postponed to November 22, 1922 due to construction delays. The idea of a national agricultural exhibition took shape after the First World War, when a group of farmers came together and formed the Agricultural Winter Fair Association of Canada. In 1920, it received full support from all levels of government and King George V granted permission to include the word "Royal" in the event name.
