Quadra Island Fall Fair
Quadra - a small Island with a big heart! An old-feel Fall Fair, in the spirit of rural tradition. This Fair showcases the breadth of diverse talents this island is home to. Exhibits, animals, entertainment, games, food, demonstrations and friendly competitions designed to inform, entertain, delight, encourage and inspire.
YES, Quadra Island’s Fall Fair returns for 2016!
Plans are hatching and volunteers are mustering for this year’s exciting rendition of Quadra Island’s Fall Fair to be held September 11.
Dates to note:
July 31 is the deadline for vendor applications. Form available on the top of this page.
September 10 is the day to deliver your truckload of exhibit entries. With this long growing season we are looking forward to a landslide of garden cornucopia as well as an amazing array of “over wintered” creative projects to fill the main hall.
September 11 is THE day to spend with family and friends taking in the exhibits, displays, demonstrations, informative talks, events, food, and artisan vendors. As always, look for a few surprises! (And hey, maybe consider taking a two hour shift in one of the many volunteer positions! Send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org)
All community services and businesses are invited to showcase themselves with a creatively decorated, informative booth.
Onward! Into the garden, the studio, the kitchen table craft attack, the farmyard, and building of dreams. See you September 11 on the grounds of the Quadra Community Centre!
