Pass Creek fall fair back for 20th anniversary

The Pass Creek Regional Exhibition Society had to change the date of our annual fall fair to the last weekend in September in order not to conflict with the Rock Creek fall fair. We would like to dispel any rumours that there is not going to be a fall fair this year.

We are celebrating our 20th official fall fair with two years of practice totalling 22 years of bringing this fair to the community.  The society and fall fair committee would like to invite everyone to celebrate our 20th anniversary with us on Sept. 26 and 27.

The exhibit and horticultural buildings will be filled with hundreds of entries. The energetic and wonderful gardeners, bakers, photographers and crafters of our area bring their exhibits to be judged and admired by the judges and visiting public. Poultry and rabbits will be entered and the public will enjoy viewing them along with the small animal display.

The youth of the area are large contributors to these exhibits and awarded prize money for their winning entries. The fair-grounds have educational displays to explore. There is a car show and dog show as well as equine events all weekend. Local talent will perform on stage all weekend. Youth will enjoy playing mini golf, being a farmer for a day, as well as having fun at the Selkirk Lions Family Carnival and fun swing/bouncy house.

The Dirty Diggers Weekend is equipment and operators who will be entertaining youngsters accompanied by their parents on small equipment/machines.

Many artisans and vendors will be present with a variety of items to sell and demonstrate. There will be wonderful food concessions with diverse menus. Please come out and enjoy a fun family weekend and make this fair the best ever by entering your exhibits, being a vendor, attending the fair and taking the free MTI bus.
