What’s in it for you?

• Show off your creativity at the fair.

•Second prize ribbon, $2

• Third prize ribbon, $1.

• Plus check out the trophies and awards you could compete for.

What can you enter?

We have categories for everyone. Aboriginal theme, Art, Canning, Cooking, Growing things (Flowers, Fruits, Vegetables,  Hobbies, Honey, Knitting, Photographs, Quilting, Sewing, Writing.

Check out the catalogue (can be picked up at most local stores) or visit our Sooke Fall Fair website for more details. (www.sookefallfair.ca).

 

Tip #1

Save all your creative art projects and writing projects from school or workshops. Then check the catolog to see what fits in the fair.

Tip #2

Everytime you make jams or jellies, or can fruits or vegetables choose the best looking jar and set it aside for the fair.

Tip #3

Take pictures all summer. Keep the catalogue list with you to remind you what you need.

Tip #4

Start Christmas sewing and knitting early so your projects can be entered in the fair first. (Then you might be able to tell the receiver of your gift that that they are wearing a prize winning outfit).

Tip #5

Everything you bake this summer check to see if it is in the catalogue. If it is take three (or required number of items) and set them aside. Wrap carefully and freeze until the Friday morning before the fair. Label “Fall Fair” so they don’t get eaten.

Tip #6

The more items you enter, the more chance you have of winning.

 

How do you enter?

For junior entries from children ages two-18 each item you enter is only 50 cents. Adults entries are only $1 each.  Fill out the form in the catalogue and follow instructions.  It’s that easy. (Late entries fees double).

Bonus project for this year

The Sooke Fall Fair will be creating and publishing a book this year.

Do you have funny, amusing, memorable stories on or around the farm.  If you would like to be published please send in your story. See catalogue for more details.  There will be a category to enter your story in the fair as as well.

Looking forward to seeing many of you at the  fair this year. Have a great summer.
