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.
