Fairs are a great place for neighbours to get together, unwind, and take in the fruits of their labours.
The Williams Lake Harvest Fair is coming up this weekend on Sept. 8 and 9, and is an annual event that’s hosted every fall in the Cariboo-Chilcotin.
The fair is focused on showcasing the importance of agriculture to all those who attend, and has been a family favourite of ours for years.
What can you expect at the Williams Lake Harvest Fair?
There are all kinds of activities! Competitions and exhibitions happen all day, each day.
Look out for loads of entertainment at the stage by the exhibit hall, a children’s play land with endless activities, fun rides, countless vendors, food concessions of all kinds, 4-H competitions, kids wild pony rides, and of course, the BC Pro Riding Finals – a long-time favourite of many Cariboo residents.
This year the Cariboo Goat Breeders Association will be showcasing their goats at the fair where you’ll have the chance to check out products that are made with goat’s milk or fibre.
While you’re there you can learn all about the furry friends.
Admission is only $6 for adults, $3 for seniors and youth aged six to 12, and free for children under five.
Help the community usher in the fall with this great family event – kick back, or live a little!
It’s all up to you at the Williams Lake Harvest Fair.
