The Saanich Fair
The Saanich Fair continues to be hosted by the Society on the grounds over the Labour Day weekend. 2018 marked the 150th year of the Fair which makes it the oldest continuous agricultural fair west of the Great Lakes.
The Fair encourages the community to continue the spirit of friendly competition between neighbors and friends alike by entering wares, be that jams & jellies, vegetables, fruit, knitting, sewing, livestock, art, photography or treasured relics from the past. These exhibits make for wonderful viewing for all fairgoers young and old. The focus is a family affair, every year the fair encourages families to come and enjoy the fairgrounds. Over 3000 people volunteer their time to put on the three-day exhibition of sights and sounds.
