Peachland Fall Fair

Fall Fair volunteers are crossing their fingers the 2021 edition won’t be cancelled because of COVID. They’ll make a decision by May on whether or not to go ahead, president Tami Theriault told me in a text convo we had recently.

A recent meeting went really well, with lots of enthusiasm – but they definitely need more volunteers, notably in the handicrafts and photography sections. The more, the merrier! Send an email if you can help – info@peachlandfallfair.ca

The 2019 edition was so fun!

The best part of Peachland’s Fall Fair is seeing all the projects people have been up to. For the 2020 edition of the fair, volunteers decided on a virtual version, by encouraging everyone to sharing pictures of their baking, handicrafts and garden bounties.

This is Tami Theriault’s first year as president of the Fall Fair committee. As The Phoenix reported back in April, the 2020 version (the 101st edition, which was set for Sept 11-13) was cancelled due to COVID.

“So, what we thought because a lot of it is visual, people can share on our Facebook page what they would have entered in the fair,” said Theriault, who served her first year as Fall Fair President in 2020.

If you go to the Fall Fair’s website, you can get an idea of all the categories – From baking, to photography, handicrafts, fruits, vegetables and flowers. Kids can enter too!

“Basically, we just want people to share,” said Theriault.

“We want to keep interest in the fair going. We don’t want people to forget about us!”
