Every year the abundance of agriculture in Powell River is showcased at the annual Fall Fair at the Exhibition Grounds off Padgett Road

This year, it’s under the leadership of the newly formed Powell River Farmers’ Agricultural Institute.

Walking through the gates into the grounds you’ll start to hear the music from the main stage, this year you’ll enjoy listening to Snag Alley, Blues Busters, Scout Mountain and Paradise.

There will be animals, vendors and of course the ever-popular exhibition hall with all of Powell River’s finest vegetables, fruit, canning, baking, crafts, art, photography, LEGO and so much more up for judging and ribbons. Adult and Kids categories available.

There will be a Kids Zone with activities for the kids to enjoy and the train will be running both days.
