The Sooke fall fair is gearing up for our 101st fair on Sept. 6th & 7th. We have a busy schedule planned this year with pony/cart rides, tractor hay rides, fun games with cash prizes and more ,which will be managed by your local youth groups, monies to go to their causes. There will be vendors, animals and fun family farm music, but most of all , we will have an incredible amount of entries with our good weather and hopefully, folks have had time to get out of the heat and make , bake and create entries for the fair.

Remember to write your amusing farm story, with the opportunity to be published in our Amusing farm storybook to be published in time for Christmas.

For our great family fun farm dance, come to Ed McGregor park on Sept. 6th from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Come dressed up and bring the kids or the kids bring Mom, Dad, Grandpa and Grandma. This is a great family event and NO ALCOHOL, will be permitted.

See you all at the Fair and if you have any trophies in your home, please call 250-812-2830 to return the trophy asap.
