110th Priddis & Millarville Fair
August 19 & 20, 2017
The 109th Priddis & Millarville Fair is a wrap! Relive the memories in our photo gallery or look to see what you missed. Then mark your calendar for the third weekend in August 2017 for the highlight of a foothills summer.
The Priddis & Millarville Fair is one of Southern Alberta’s oldest and largest country fairs. Located at the Millarville Racetrack and co-hosted with the Millarville Farmers’ Market, the Fair is the place to come to learn about Alberta’s agricultural history, touch the animals, view the creations of local artisans, gardeners, photographers and wood workers. We have antique tractors, cars and trucks that span generations, horse riding events of all types, and contests – pie eating, rooster crowing, watermelon eating, youth talent.
With products made, baked or grown in Alberta, you can support local farmers and crafters while learning about our rich agricultural history visiting displays and demonstrations. From field crops to honey bees and whether it is observing how livestock is graded or taking time to marvel at the great display of judged entries, there is no shortage of things to do at the Fair! Interested in home cooking & baking, arts & handicrafts, fibre arts, photography, woodworking, flowers, fruits and vegetables? Then we have something for you.
Anyone and everyone is welcome and encouraged to enter as an exhibitor at the Fair, and many exhibitors will say that participating as an exhibitor adds a whole new kind of fun to the Fair experience. Take a breath of courage and put your creations and skills on display for our judges. It’s never too early to start planning for next year using the 2016 Priddis & Millarville Fair book as a guide until our 2017 book is published in the spring of 2017.
The Fair succeeds because of the outstanding support from our community – financial contributions, volunteer time and exhibitor participation. It takes community involvement in all 3 areas to create this spectacular country fair, filled with Western charm that generations of families look forward to each August.
Interested in supporting the Fair? It’s never too early to make a donation!
