[Sep 13/15] The Kootenay Country Fair is one of the major attractions of the season at Fort Steele each year. Bring the whole family and join hundreds of folks for a real old-fashioned country event just bursting with the flavours of the harvest season.
The gates open just in time for breakfast – a pancake breakfast, of course! It’s the only way to begin a whole day of great activities for everyone.
There’s a bit of everything for everyone at the Kootenay Country Fair. Of course, you can expect the usual displays of garden-grown splendor -– flowers, vegetables and fruits –- with awards for the finest, the choicest and the most beautiful entries.
A country fair wouldn’t be complete without home-baking, art, photography and beautiful homemade crafts, mouthwatering jams, jellies and pickles. There will be commercial tables, live animals and, of course, scrumptious food. Watch demonstrations, take a wagon ride and tap your feet to old-time country music.
For the kids, there are face painting, decorated bicycles and lots of games.
Stay around for the afternoon auction when the produce, the flowers and the baking will go to the highest bidder.
Can’t think of a better way to spend a beautiful fall day than at the Kootenay Country Fair!.
