Creston Valley Fall Fair

September 7, 2018 @ 2:00 PM - September 8, 2018 @ 5:00 PM

Fall Fair, 1921, Creston Museum, Creston BC

The 1921 Creston Valley Fall Fair

For as long as people have been growing fruit in Creston, they have been exhibiting it at fall fairs. As early as 1908, local growers competed very successfully in apple fairs or fall fairs in Nelson, Cranbrook, Kaslo, and Grand Forks, and even in Spokane and London. The prizes the local fruit won at those fairs helped boost the Creston Valley’s fame as an apple-growing district.

It was not long before local residents began thinking of establishing a fair of their own, and, by 1918, the Creston Valley Fall Fair that we know and love today had begun.

The Creston Museum is helping celebrate this 100th anniversary with a series of exhibits at the Creston Valley Fall Fair, September 7-8, 2018. It all takes place at the Fair itself, held at the Creston & District Community Complex.

Fall Fair admission applies. For more information about the Creston Valley Fall Fair, please visit www.crestonvalleyfair.com.
