Date for Tlell Fall Fair doesn’t fall in the fall

The Tlell Fall Fair has one distinction that sets it apart from other fall fairs in British Columbia.

The Tlell Fall Fair has one distinction that sets it apart from other fall fairs in British Columbia.

It’s not held in the fall.

The 32nd annual Tlell Fall Fair, held on the Sunday before B.C. Day every year is the “earliest fall fair in B.C.”, and it’s thanks to wind and rain that the event is pushed ahead to Sunday, Aug. 3 this year.

The fair celebrates agriculture on Haida Gwaii and area farmers can show off their produce, livestock and poultry for the masses to see.

Contests on livestock, poultry, garden produce, flowers, house-plants, handi-crafts, baking and more will be judged at the non-alcoholic event and educational displays and hands-on activities will also give tourists and fair-goers a range of things to do.

Canadian singer-songwriter and fiddle virtuoso Sierra Noble will headline the day’s entertainment. The performer has opened for Paul McCartney and Bon Jovi and has played at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver.

Musician Rick Scott, a natural story-teller and family entertainer will also be in attendance. Scott has eight children’s albums and three Juno nominations. The popular local band “Out of the Blue” will perform blues, folk, classic rock, southern rock and country.

The Tlell fair is a member of the BC Association of Agricultural Fairs and Exhibitions and you can join their Facebook group at Tlell Fall Fair or visit their website online at
