See you in 2021!

Local vendors, service clubs and societies will showcase their world and invite you to experience the ‘fabric’ of Summerland.
And of course, don’t miss the 3rd annual Kripps Golden Zucchini Race.
Schedule to be announced.
In anticipation of ongoing pandemic threats, the fair is being postponed until attending this community event is completely safe. Hopefully, that will be in September 2021.
The uncertainty associated with the present pandemic was a major factor in the decision to postpone the fair. Planning for the fair requires months of preparation by the board, volunteers, growers, and exhibitors.
After a three-year hiatus, the annual celebration of agriculture in Summerland was re-imagined and became a smashing success in 2018 and 2019.
The Fall Fair committee will continue to engage as many Summerland farmers, gardeners, and related businesses as possible in order to make the future fall fair the social event of the year for agriculture.
If you fall into any of these categories, please send your contact info and the name of your farm or organization to firstname.lastname@example.org (or email@example.com).
The Summerland Fall Fair is the co-recipient of the 2019 Exhibit Achievement
Award recently presented by the BC Association of Agricultural Fairs and
Exhibitions for featuring the 'buy BC’ logo at last September's fair. The
award consists of a plaque and $1000 shared equally with co-recipient Sooke
Fall Fair. The plaque is held by board member President Thomas Tumbach flanked by board members Bobby Bovenvi, Glenda Reid, Donna Savoie and Denise MacDonald in the above photograph. Last month the Fair received a grant of $6500 from the Municipality of Summerland which gives this community event early, and much appreciated, support.
The 2020 Fair is slated for Saturday, September 26 in Memorial Park, the Art Gallery and surrounding venues.
