Fall fair celebrates weddings

The Sooke Fall Fair will feature wedding-related topics in June

 

This month on June 28, the Sooke Fall Fair will be celebrating the wedding month of June.

We will be showcasing the wine and beer section and highlighting our new ginger beer category to the fair this year. There is a recipe in the catalogue for ginger beer and we look forward to some samples at the market.

We are also inviting our fair members to send in their wedding photos to Irene Elrose, who will make up a collage of wedding  pictures.  See if you can find out who is who. Abbie, one of our members, will bring in her wedding gown and the veil she created. We will be serving up some lovely mini cupcakes  on our lovely laced tables by Sheila Hubbard. We will also have a bake table loaded with a variety of mini-cupcakes. (Look for some lovely mini sandwiches at the concession). As well look for our regular vendors and others to bring some added flavor to a fun market. We will be selling our cookbooks, and raffle tickets for the Star quilt worth $1,200, second prize, local meat basket valued at $250 and local value-added local foods and vegetables worth $150. We will have photos of the quilt which is on display at the Reading Room bookstore.

We hope to have our catalogue available with all our fun theme added categories helping us to Celebrate Family Farms. Watch for updates weekly.
