Mayne Island Fall Fair: Sat Aug 20

91st Annual Mayne Island Fall Fair 
Saturday, August 20th, 2016
Mayne Island Agricultural Hall and Grounds

Come and join your community in the celebration of our 91st Fall Fair.  We look forward to you entering exhibits in the Fair, participating in the amazing Zucchini Races, and enjoying the games and events planned for the day.

Our theme this year is "Home Grown". We will have displays of home grown produce and materials as well as home grown performers on our stage all the while using our home grown volunteers. There will be a Farmer's Market on Minty Drive, the Lions will have their hamburger and hot dog stand, the Lunch Room will be open again this year with a quiet restful place to eat and catch your breath, as well as popcorn and ice cream for all.

Fernhill Road will be closed to vehicle traffic for the day which allows everyone to enjoy the activities on both side of Fernhill at the Gaol/Museum and at the Agricultural Hall and on the grounds.  Hope to see you there!
