Fall Fair slated for Sept. 22 – 23

Quesnel Agriculture and Exhibition Association ready for 28th year of Fall Fair

Livestock in the Agriplex is just one great reason to visit the Fall Fair

Quesnel Agriculture and Exhibition Association is busy preparing for this year’s Fall Fair, Sept. 22 – 23 at Alex Fraser Park and promises it will be an event to remember.

“This year we’ve partnered with the barrel racers for a truly diversified Fall Fair,” QAEA president Judy Easy said.

“We’re still offering all the traditional elements but with an exciting, dynamic barrel racing component.”

One of the fair’s highlights has always been the arts and agriculture division where local gardeners and crafters present their finest products for competition.

Returning to the Arts and Rec Centre’s West Fraser Timber Room, the public is invited to browse through the division and view the exceptional efforts on offer.

Baking, needlework, canning, vegetables, flowers, photography, crafts, children’s work and much more will be on display.

Walking from the fair grounds to the West Fraser Timber Room, the public is invited to enjoy the Vendor Walk where food, displays, kids play area and areas to sit and relax are available.

“We’re planning on arranging several areas around the park where people can stop, take a rest and enjoy the sights and sounds of the fair at their leisure,” Easy said.

The Agriplex will also be a hive of activities. And yes, that includes a beekeepers display as well as horse and carriages, farm animals and several other displays.

And what fair would be complete without a stroll through the Fur and Feather barns where all manner of critters and birds will be judged and displayed – always a family favourite.

With demonstrations galore and a smattering of wonderous gizmos from the Antique Machinery Park, the 2012 Fall Fair promises two days of family fun.
