Rossland Fall Fair in sight

September 6, the Rossland Fall Fair will fill the Rossland Arena with music and live entertainment and much more.

On Saturday September 6, the Rossland Fall Fair will fill the Rossland Arena with music and live entertainment, a variety of unique vendors selling their wares and an exhibition of agriculture, local crafts and hand-made goods.

The 2014 Rossland Fall Fair is dedicated to the memory of Bobbi LaFond, the driving force behind the Fall Fair for many years.

Special attractions this year include the Golden City Modelers club with their model train display of Rossland’s gold rush era, Crazy Buzzard Falconry with their birds of prey and an appearance by “DeeDee” the clown.

Parkour by Rossland’s School of Motion will take place in the curling rink and all student admissions to the fair can enter a draw to win an iPod.

There are some new and improved categories in this year’s Fall Fair brochure. The six and under age group can enter any cookies made with a grandparent—include a photo along with the cookie entry. There is also a computer generated graphics category for the 13 to under 16 year olds.

A new section called Green Art encourages entrants to create something using recycled and/or natural materials.  A scrapbook category has been added to the adult arts and crafts section. This could include a photo album page, cards or other scrapbook items. The requirements of the organizational competition have also been changed to encourage groups to enter. There are a number of other changes to the brochure so be sure to enter the fair.

Everyone is encouraged to bring their entries to the arena on Friday September 5 from noon to 7:00 p.m..  All entries to be judged, with ribbons and prize money will be awarded. Exhibits will be on display during the Fall Fair on Saturday September 6 from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m..  Special sponsorship prizes from Fleishman’s, Robin Hood, Bernardin and Crisco will be awarded again this year to exhibitors in the baking and canning sections.

Brochures and entry forms are available at the Rossland Library and various other locations downtown.


The fall fair committee acknowledges the help of the Columbia  Basin Trust, the RDKB and the City of Rossland in bringing this event to the community.
