Rock Creek & Boundary Fair 2014

Mark your calendar for the weekend of September 13th and 14th. The Rock Creek and Boundary Fair has it all and the surrounding region is pure awesomeness. Be there!

Rock Creek’s Rugged Beauty

Rock Creek in the beautiful Kettle River Valley is steeped in history. This is Boundary country, where people like things rugged and tough, especially the stunning scenery. Since its gold rush days in the 19th century, it is today very productive with agriculture and as a magnet for visitors. Vacationers and weekend travelers adore Rock Creek for its charm, its views, its gold panning, camping, horse riding, fishing, mountain bike riding, hiking and wildlife.

The Rock Creek & Boundary Fair – “The Biggest Little Country Fair Around”

The first Rock Creek and Boundary Fair was held in 1946 as a one-day event to bring the community together. It has since grown into a two-day tradition that not only showcases local agriculture and craft, but includes many other attractions.

This is one of the few true country fairs and is organized every year almost entirely by volunteers from the community. There are tons of fun events for the whole family to enjoy and organizers work very hard to ensure the fair retains its great country atmosphere.

What to Do at the 2014 Fair 

This year’s Rock Creek and Boundary Fair runs on September 13th and 14th. Come get away from city crowds and sink your teeth into everything, including carnival rides, fun games where you win great prizes, livestock competitions, Gymkhana, lawnmower and trailer races, remote control car races, farm games for the kids, and the hilarious clowns Uncle Chris and P.T.

There will be masses of exhibits and concession stands for you to sample the best harvest produce from the area as well as all those yummy mini-donuts!

A fantastic line-up of free entertainment is booked for this year. This includes the popular Tim Hus and his Travelin’ Band, so be sure to bring your dancing shoes and stompin’ boots! Also featured will be the Pernell Reichert Band, Charlotte Diamond, Timely Wonders and Sock Monkey.

Where to Stay in Rock Creek

The Old Cowboy Ranch is an institution in the area, offering both camping and fully equipped suites. Situated just 15 km north of Rock Creek, you can enjoy riverside camping in the private and treed campsites or else kick back in comfort in a well-appointed cabin. The ranch even offers trail rides and horse riding lessons for people of all ages.

For those who would prefer to stay in Rock Creek itself, try the River View Log Cottages for some authentic BC living. Otherwise, the whole area is loaded with fantastic B&Bs, villas, motels and hotels.
