Hypnotist, Elvis and more at Agassiz Fall Fair

Plenty of entertainment for the whole family at historic fall fair

There’s always something entertaining happening on stage during the Agassiz Fall Fair, and the show is always suitable for the whole family.

Friday’s stage show starts with a fascinating show featuring hypnotist Lee Dyson, followed by Agassiz’s own Adam Briscoe. Regulars to the fair have been watching Briscoe develop as a performer over the past several years, from a young singer in high school to the musician he’s become.

Then 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.

Participants come from every walk of life to test their skills, with hilarious results.

Entertainers to take the stage Saturday include Jeff Bodner’s Essence of Elvis tribute, the Legion Pipe Band, dancers from Images and Creative Outlet, Adam Briscoe, and more.

And on Saturday night, adults can catch the group Just Smokin’ in the beer gardens.

Of course 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, logging demonstrations, 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.

Admission does include a pass for the midway rides, which are being operated by West Coast Amusements.

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.
