Message from the Mayor
Message of Welcome from the Office of Mayor Henry Braun
As Mayor of Abbotsford and on behalf of the Abbotsford City Council, I am pleased to welcome you to the 106th Abbotsford Agrifair, the best little country fair – on EARTH!
Thanks to each of you for contributing to the Abbotsford Agrifair. It is because of your participation that this year’s fair will be outstanding. While promoting and educating about the importance of agriculture in our community, the Abbotsford Agrifair provides residents and visitors the opportunity to celebrate our rich farming history. Without your dedication, the Abbotsford Agrifair would
not be the success it is.
A highlight this year is the “Gate to Plate” program, showcasing where our food comes from. 4-H Clubs from across the Lower Mainland, The Island and the Kootenay Region are involved in this new program. Thank you for sharing your enthusiasm and expertise! Our city is proud to be the home of the 2016 Abbotsford Agrifair, and I extend a warm welcome to all the exhibitors from across the province and country. I encourage you and your families to not only enjoy all the fair has to offer this year, but also to take the time to explore our City. Whether it is shopping in our historic downtown area or the HighStreet Mall, walking around Mill Lake, exploring our parks or visiting our recreational facilities, I trust you will receive a warm welcome wherever you go.
Best wishes to all the exhibitors.
