Ready to “party with the animals”? Come to Salt Spring Island’s Fall Fair this year and do exactly that! Since 1895 the Fall Fair has been one of the oldest and biggest traditional events you can find on Salt Spring Island. Its celebrations and contests have changed over the years, but most of it remains as it did back when agriculture was the backbone of the island’s economy!
Kids and adults alike can enjoy several activities at this year’s fair, including:
- Pet parade
- Tractor pull
- Zucchini races
- Livestock and the 4H
- A sheepdog demonstration
- Fairway with games and contests
- Delicious food including the Women’s Institute’s famous pies
- Hundreds of homemade art, cooking, preserves, crops, and flowers on display
- And live music throughout the day!
If you want to get the most out of this experience by staying for the weekend, accommodations are available throughout Salt Spring Island as well as close by the event’s location.
