From the seed of an idea to a Community-wide celebration of island life and the harvest season, the "Local is Focal" Fall Fair is in motion.
It began with the commitment of two people to take the lead and fire up the enthusiasm for a full-on Fall Fair. Two became a core group of six, then six grew till 35 people were on board, pitching in and taking responsibility for events or exhibit categories. With the increasing interest in local food production and local economy, the time is right to start a grand Fall Fair tradition in earnest.
Plan your harvest now to include produce to enter and exhibit. Stitch up a quilt or create something quirky to enter in the up-cycled or invention categories. There will be animal exhibits, a pet parade, demonstrations, vendors’, food, entertainment and much, much more. Cultivate your creativity - there is an exhibit category for everyone at the Quadra Island "Local is Focal" Fall Fair. It all takes place on our Community Centre grounds this September 4th.
Stay tuned to the Gumboot for details on exhibit categories.
