Best of the Fall Fair on Salt Spring Island
The Salt Spring Island Fall Fair is Saltspring’s oldest community event, in action since 1895. The Fall fair is a great event that connects locals and visitors alike at the Farmers’ institute. Between zucchini races, tractor pulls, live music, delicious food, and competitions with hundreds of displays, the fall Fair is a celebration of our communities skills in agriculture and the arts.
It displays some of the best of the community from arts and crafts, to produce and poultry. We like to grow food, so this year our family decided to participate in the fall fair. We entered our garden produce into the categories of Garlic, Family Basket, Medicinal Herbs, Potatoes, Blueberries, and Tallest Sunflower.
I’m proud to share that we won second prize for the categories of Potatoes and Blueberries, and first prize for Garlic, Family Basket of Produce, Tallest Sunflower, and medicinal herb display!
