Entering the Fair
YOU KNOW YOU ARE ENTERING A FAIR WHEN….
The best little country fair on earth!
Plan for the best 3 days of your summer to be at Agrifair!
Your “stay-cation” destination.
Haven’t heard yet?
Agrifair is the place to be July 29 to 31, 2016
It’s everything you imagined in a fair!
As you walk into the gates you will be greeted by sights, smells and sounds that you have never experienced before.
“The fair has taken the time to re-invent itself.” Says Vice President Stephanie Nelson. “We have changed the main entrance, now when you enter you will be greeted by animals, immediately! You are walking into the fair, and there is nothing like being greeted by animals such as: cows, mini donkeys, a buffalo, llamas, even rabbits. It is the real fair experience.”
As guests enter they will have the opportunity to grab a program, sit and figure out what they want to see first as the kids are entertained. The excitement starts the minute you enter the gates. As you walk through Agriland with the exotic animals and the smell of farm! You are also greeted by a FREE balloon artist. Curve around to the Gate to Plate program where the prize money games start. Or maybe you would like to check out the Fraserway RV FREE family building. Again, for the first time ever, Agrifair has partnered to create a FREE family venue – get out of the heat or just take a break. There are tons of details regarding the FWRV Free family zone coming, just know that it’s FREE!! And, NEW, a mothers/fathers room, with complimentary diapers, wipes, cold water, and some couches to relax on, a place to go when a family member needs a quiet area.
Outside you can keep the action going and you will find the Dairy Classroom, Poultry in Motion, horseshoeing demos and sheep shearing demos. Don’t forget the kids tractor pull bought to you by the Antique Farm Machinery, along with rope making demonstrations, and more of old meets new.
Head into the 4-H barns, meet the 4-H kids, talk to the clubs and learn so much more about Abbotsford agriculture heritage. Learn about the different types of farm animals, dairy cows, beef cows and so much more. “The barns will be full all three days,” states Livestock Director Lorne Webster. “There is plenty of competitions for these 4-H kids, and the reward is big prizes including cold hard cash.”
Check out the Agrifair Arena for the antics of the Country Horse Classic show. Bob Street, director of the show, is excited to present for a third year of the wheel barrow races – who knew that putting a wheelbarrow behind a horse would cause such action! But you really need to see it in person to understand. Not a seat left in the house so get there early. Once again the horse and hound show will be a big hit, horse vs canine – who could resist?
And guess what – this is only the upper level of the fair, stay tuned for the lower level entertainment announcement!
Get ready Abbotsford and beyond…….Agrifair is the best country fair on earth!
