When the Ontario Agricultural College began hosting its annual College Royal event 90 years ago, the above building – once known as the Field Husbandry Building, now Zavitz Hall – featured prominently. It hosted the agriculture exhibits, while the livestock show was held in the Judging Pavilion – now the Bullring, a campus coffee shop. College Royal has expanded over its history, and this year it includes 12 days of events, from the College Royal Ball to this weekend’s open house. Thousands of people are expected to visit the campus this Saturday and Sunday to check out everything from campus clubs to academic programs, a variety of competitions from photography to logging, and multiple animal shows. No longer the Field Husbandry Building, Zavitz will still be part of College Royal. As the home of fine arts, it will host a juried art show, a new element of this year’s event, taking place from March 14 to 16.
