What is the Spring Farm Fair All About?

Bringing farmers, ranchers, public and vendors together who raise all different types of livestock, fruit trees, nurseries, poultry, grape vines, nuts, herbs, bees etc.
Inviting farming businesses to attend and support farmers offering information on merchandise available and information on how it would impact their farm and improve their operation.
Inviting the public to attend and have the option of purchasing items farmer direct and the ability to purchase from their local farmer in the future.
Offering consumers the knowledge of what food they consume and how it’s handled, produced and processed.

The most important assets of this event is…

  • …to pass on firsthand knowledge
  • …to provide the opportunity to purchase farm animals & equipment
  • …to gather farmers in person to meet, talk and share
  • …to provide the public with that much needed information:
  • …Where can I find what locally?

Farmers

Attending farmers from the East & West Kootenays, Boundary and South Okanagan have the opportunity to sell their different types of livestock, crops, fruit trees, poultry, etc. while sharing their knowledge. They may share their expertise with new farmers or potential new farmers. To find a local farmer that can speak from experience and share their knowledge is priceless. Perhaps new farmers may even find a mentor who will teach them so they can eventually pass on knowledge to the next generation of farmers.

Vendors

Attending Farm Vendors can and display their products from the farm like soap, live baby chicks, honey, canning, weaving, eggs, garlic, vegetable seeds, bedding plants, grape vines, nuts, herbs, bees etc. There will be a specific indoor area for these vendors to set up their products on provided tables.

Farming Businesses

Attending Farming Businesses will be there to support farmers in merchandise, equipment and farming expertise. They will provide info on what they carry, what can be ordered and provide farmers with one to one consultation to meet the farmers individual needs.

The Pass Creek Fall Fair Needs Your Support!

Please sign our Petition

See List of Petition Signatures

What is the petition for?

  • Petition is for a 6 month seasonal paid caretaker at the Pass Creek Exhibition Grounds. Don & Irene Hill are retiring and have been caretakers which included ground and building maintenance for “FREE” for the past 20 years as members of Pass Creek Regional Exhibtion Society that host’s Pass Creek Fall Fair, Dog Shows, Horse Shows & Clinics along with 2nd Annual Spring Fair, Music Festivals, Family Reunions and Weddings. The amount of hours Don & Irene have given to the public as unpaid volunteers is incredible and they are the true meaning of volunteer.
  • Pass Creek Regional Exhibition Society wants to keep hosting Fall Fair and all other events which include overnight dry camping at all events. As a small group of dedicated volunteers we cannot maintain the Exhibition Grounds, organizing and host all these great family events as well
  • We need help and the public support by signing this petition by residents of City of Castlegar, Area I and Area J. We also want to encourage the public to attend the open house Park Study Committee meetings therefore having a say in what happens at the Pass Creek Park with their tax dollars
  • RDCK has a lease with Pass Creek Regional Exhibition Society for a small portion of Pass Creek Park. The Exhibition Society has developed these grounds, paid for and built all the buildings on site which RDCK owns. PCRES has improved the Park for public use over the last 23 years. PCRES has applied to the City of Castlegar and Area I & J for funding from the City and Columbia Basin Trust. We have always appreciated any funds awarded which has gone into improving the exhibition grounds or towards Fall Fair & now the 2nd Annual Spring Fair. The funds received never cover the cost of the Fall Fair or the expenses in operating the Exhibition Grounds.

We appreciate your support and hope to see you at the PCRES meetings.

Next Fall Fair dates September 25th, 26th & 27th 2015
