Kimberley Fall Fair coming quickly

A Kimberley tradition, the Kimberley Fall Fair sees over 5,000 patrons pass through the gates.

Plenty to see and do

The Kimberley Community Fall Fair is always held the last full weekend of September — this year Saturday, September 29 and Sunday, September 30.

The fall fair is a Kimberley tradition, attracting upwards of 5,000 people through a variety of booths, from artisans to small business, larger business, even politics — both Columbia River Revelstoke MLA Norm Macdonald and BC Liberal challenger Doug Clovechok have booked booths, seeing it as an opportunity to meet with a large number of potential voters.

There are also food booths, children’s activities outdoors and much more.

City Councillor Bev Middlebrook has been the driving force behind the fair for the past several years and she says it is shaping up to be as successful as always.

“It’s filling up quickly,” she said. “There are lots of new booths coming in and lots of old favourites coming back as well.”

The fair is always held at the Marysville Arena. It began as a fundraiser for the Kimberley Dynamiters and now serves to support many different community groups.
