Big changes coming to Sooke Fall Fair

You’ll see some big changes at the Sooke Fall Fair this year.

To start with, all activities will take place at the Sooke Community Hall. The main floor of the hall will be used for photography, art, literary art, youth and junior sections.

Due to this change , the fall fair will have tents outdoors with the Harborside Lions serving meals all day from 11 a.m. on Saturday and from 9 a.m. on Sunday.

Sooke Country Market will adorn Eustace Road with foods and homemade products for sale from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday.

The fair will open at 11 a.m. and games (profits to the Sooke Soccer Club) and animal viewing will start at 11 a.m.

The fair will open at 9 a.m. on Sunday and while fair-goers enjoy breakfast they’ll be entertained by the Vancouver Island 4-H Speak and Show members competition. Learn about how 4-Hers raise their animals.

Pie eating , chicken bingo, duck and chicken races, pony cart rides, and amazing talents are all part of the fair experience.

Also new this year is the opportunity to buy items from entrants, from veggies to quilts and hobbies. Watch for the red dot and see section heads for owner details.

Remember the live auction at the end of the fair where all items with happy face stickers will be auctioned off after the awards. There is also big cash prizes and some new trophies.

The fair’s theme is Something is Fishy at the Sooke Fall Fair.
