Happy 150th Canada! August 11-13th 2017
The 145th Chilliwack Fair is now over and we are incredibly thankful for our wonderful volunteers as well as all of those people who attended the Fair! We had an incredible turn out this year and we are already excited about getting the 146th Chilliwack Fair organized (after some much needed sleep).
Concert Edit! We apologize for the confusion, but our posters you may see around town have a typo! The dates for the main evening concerts on the Chances Chilliwack Stage is switched on the poster.
You will see in our concert section (here) lists that Friday night’s concert is actually Atlantic Crossing and Saturday night’s concert is Thunderstruck! Unfortunately, the posters around town say the opposite (oops!). Give us a call here at the office if you have any other questions. Thanks for your patience!
We are honouring the passing this last year of one of our biggest supporters, Charlie Thomson by having the 2017 Open Dairy Show in his honour this year. We would also like to offer prize money for Herdsmanship in Charlie’s honour – please call or email the office for more information. (email@example.com)
The wait is over! Online entries are now ready for those looking to enter into 4-H or Livestock! The instructions and link to the online entry website can be found under the “Get Involved” tab, or by clicking here.
For those of you looking to register for any other categories at the Fair you can check out the Prize Book by clicking here. From there you can print off your registration page or come by the office here at the fair grounds to fill out your forms. The first due date for forms is July 21 (Sheep and 4-H), and if done on paper, these forms and payment must be turned into the Fair Office by 4:30 that day.
Any questions? Feel free to call the Fair Office any weekday between 8:30 and 4:30 at (604) 824-8191.
Every year the Chilliwack Fair relies on hundreds of volunteers to help make everything go smoothly. If you think that you may want to be part of this crew of hard working and excellent volunteers, then we would love to hear from you. We ask that you please fill out the Volunteer Registration Form or come into the Fair Office to fill out a paper. You can also take a look at the volunteer opportunities that are still needing to be filled on our “Get Involved” page. From there you can make a request as to which job you may prefer.
Not here for the weekend of the fair? We can still use your help! Set up and take down of the whole Heritage Park site is a lot of work and we always need more hands. Please take a look at the volunteer opportunities or give us a call at the office any weekday and we’ll be happy to get you all signed up to volunteer!
