Pass Creek Fall Fair marks 25 years

Event will take place September 22 and 23 in Robson.

The Pass Creek Fall Fair will be marking 25 years when it opens the gates on Sept. 22.

“Twenty-five years ago we started a small little fall fair celebrating local agriculture and country living,” said president Donna Smith. “From these humble beginnings we are now the largest two day fall fair in the West Kootenay and were awarded best small fall fair in BC in 2013.

“We are so proud of our fall fair and the community support that has helped it grow.”

The fair is a family-friendly agricultural exhibition held Sept. 22 and 23.

People are encouraged to enter as many exhibit classes as they can.

“Challenge your family, neighbours and friends. We want to be voted Best Small Fair in BC in 2018 to celebrate our 25th year. We need your entries to make this happen,” said Smith.

The fair is an opportunity to celebrate the unique culture, heritage and talent of our community.

“We are very proud to feature local talented artists, delicious food and great entertainment,” said Smith.

This year look for the laughing loggers show, dirty diggers, antique car, motorcycle and vintage car show, lawnmower races, mini golf and a bouncy house.

The fair happens each year by a core group of hard working volunteers, who donate many hundreds of hours to organize this annual event.

The fair thanks all supporters in the community for their efforts, be it financial, material, hard work, time or effort.

Check out the online 2018 Pass Creek Fall Fair booklet for the exciting line up of entertainment and attractions. Fall fair information, entry forms for vendors and exhibitors are also online.

A free bus to the fairgrounds will be supplied by Mountain Transport Institute both Saturday and Sunday to help eliminate any parking issues. Paid parking is available with all monies going to the Castlegar Air Cadets.
