Salmon Arm Fair

It’s almost that time again. On the Friday, Saturday and Sunday after Labour Day, Salmon Arm’s hive of activity is at the Fairgrounds. This traditionally agricultural fair has a tremendous family and community spirit, sure to please everyone. This year’s attractions and events are many and varied. They even include lawn tractor racing, performances by great entertainers, Shuswap Idol, exhibitions of the best the Shuswap region has to offer, and the 100th anniversary of the 4-H program in BC.

And of course, the carnival rides, games and concessions that no fair can do without.

Halfway between Vancouver and Calgary nestles what just may be BC’s ideal place for summer: Salmon Arm. Located at the mouth of the Salmon River as it flows into Shuswap Lake, the town and surrounding area has everything: beaches, houseboats, waterskiing, fishing, camping, hiking, hotels, art, golf, dining, shopping and, of course, the annual Salmon Arm Fair.
