Salmon Arm Fair

salmon arm fall fairIf you think summer is over and that’s it with the kids going back to school, think again! September is the BEST time for a fair – especially in the sensational Shuswap region of BC’s Okanagan.

As the saying goes, if you got it, flaunt it. For 120 years, the Salmon Arm Fall Fair has proven it has plenty to flaunt and 2017’s spectacular fair is no exception! The theme this year is ‘Something to Crow About’ and we think that’s perfect.

That first week of school doesn’t involve much work for the kids, so give them one more bit of vacation fun. Head to Salmon Arm from September 8th to 10th and see for yourself. This annual fair brings the people of the Okanagan-Shuswap region together to celebrate the community, enjoy the scrumptious harvest, show off local talent, and have loads of fun.  Read More »

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.

2012-Salmon-Arm-Contests-61One of the most delightful jobs I have in the Carnival Business is to see all the incredible art and literature done by the children and youth in the Shooting Star Amusements’ Sponsored Contests at the Fairs. It is equally as difficult to pick only one winner in each category!

When you see these works of art, it is obvious the kids put in such tremendous effort to create these masterpieces. It makes me happy to know they are thinking of the fair and the Carnival rides, games and treats the whole time they are crafting or writing their stories.
