Quesnel and District 4-H Show and Sale will feature online bidding

The event is set for August 6 - 8 inside Alex Fraser Park

The Quesnel and District 4-H club is looking forward to a relatively normal show and sale.

The sale is set for August 6 – 8 inside Alex Fraser Park.

“Up until recently, our programming has been closed to the public due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but we are excited to welcome the public to attend our event this year and check out all the hard work the members have been putting into their projects,” one of the district’s key leaders, Cody Dillabough, said.

The sale will be a hybrid of indoor and outdoors. Beef will be on display in the outdoor pens, with sheep, swine, goats and poultry inside the new Agriculture Events Centre.

“Our members work hard on all of their project over the year. I am humbled to be able to welcome the public to check out their hard work and achievements” Dillabough said.

A catalogue featuring the projects for sale is available on the district’s Facebook page.

With COVID-19 health measures in place during last year’s sale, the district introduced proxy bidding and pre-bidder registration, which will be returning this year. They’ll be adding in online bidding in 2021.

Nearly $80,000 was spent at the club’s auction in 2020.

“The kids are very excited to exhibit their projects at this year’s show and sale,” district key leader Erin Kishkan said. “They are even more excited that the show will have some normalcy back to it. The pride that these members put into their projects year after year always astonishes me.”

Dillabough reminded buyers to follow health and safety protocols inside the park.
