Prepping for annual fair

Businesses and members of the public are invited to take part in the fair either as vendors or exhibitors.

  • Aug. 11, 2015 8:00 p.m.

Your entry can win a prize and your business can get excellent exposure when you get involved in the Salmon Arm Fair.

There is still space available for commercial vendors, who are asked to call the office for more information.

The welcome mat is out for all the regulars and fair organizers look forward to all new entrants and commercial vendors.

Just a reminder, that the fair office is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. until Aug. 19.

For early registration and inquiries, beat the rush.  Registration blitz days are Aug. 20 to 21 from 1 to 7 p.m. and Saturday, Aug. 22 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Phone 250-832-0442 or drop in at the fair office, at the front of the SASCU Memorial Arena.

The Thundering Impact Drill Team is participating for the first time and the ever-popular Shuswap Idol competition and Just for Kicks dance group will perform as always.

“We have pioneer days covered and have added selfies to our photography section,” reads a Salmon Arm Fair press release.

“There is so much more this year so make sure you sign up as an exhibitor, a commercial vendor or a participant on the weekend of Sept. 11 to 13.”

Before going to the fair on Sunday, Sept. 13, enjoy a full breakfast for $6 at the Seniors Fifth Avenue Activity Centre at 170 Fifth Ave.  SE from 8 a.m. to noon.

For all the goods on the fair, pick up a Salmon Arm Fair book at the Salmon Arm Observer or library, or visit
