As always, the outdoor stage at the Agassiz Fall Fair will feature a full lineup of performers, including several local favourites.

Agassiz’s Adam Briscoe kicks the show off on Friday night, followed by hypnotist Lee Dyson and then Terri Bremner’s country show.

On Saturday, the stage is home to everything from the opening ceremonies and the crowing of the Corn King or Queen, to the annual goat milking competition.

Entertainers to take the stage Saturday include Jeff Bodner’s Essence of Elvis tribute, Daryl Weyman’s Reflections in Black tribute to Johnny Cash, Adam Briscoe, and Terri Bremner. And on Saturday night, adults can catch The Roadrunners in the beer gardens.

But there is entertainment all around the fairgrounds, with something for everyone.

Kids will love to watch the BMX Bike show, while dads won’t want to miss the logging demonstrations.

Other highlights include Rosie Ribbonstar, wheelbarrow races, a pie eating competition, and of course, the exhibits in the Agricultural Hall.

Tickets and more

Admission to the fair is free on Friday. On Saturday, admission is $6 for an adult in advance, and $8 at the gate.

For children ages six to 11, admission is $3. Children under six are free.

Advance tickets are available at the Observer, Shoppers Drug Mart Agassiz, Agassiz Harrison Printers, Prospera Credit Union, HUB Barton Insurance, Holly Tree Florist and Gifts, Allenby’s Farm Store, Ledoux Hardware and Agassiz Produce.

Admission to the Agricultural Hall on Friday night, to view the displays is $2.50. There is no fee to enter the hall on Saturday.

Remember that when the Ag Hall closes on Saturday night at 7 p.m., an auction of the exhibits begins shortly after. Exhibition winners can claim their prizes at the fair office during the fair.

Parking and the shuttle are free.
