Summer is here and it’s time to start thinking about the Rossland Fall Fair.

The Rossland Fall Fair originated before the Second World War but has been put on annually for more than 40 years.

The Fall Fair, held during Golden City Days, is a one-day celebration of old fashioned community consisting of an exhibition of baking, flowers, fruits, vegetables, canning, wine and beer, jams, jellies, arts, crafts, photography, sewing, knitting, crocheting, eggs, butter and honey.

The Fall Fair features a petting zoo in addition to many information booths and venders selling a variety of items.

Live music and entertainment will be ongoing in the arena throughout the day, as well as food and beverages.

New this year for exhibitors in the baking and canning sections will be special sponsorship prizes from Fleischmann’s Yeast, Rogers Brand Flour, Bernardin, Robin Hood and Crisco.

Look for details in the Fall Fair brochures coming out soon.

Children and adults will bring their exhibits to the Rossland Arena on Friday, Sept. 6 to enter them in the appropriate category, after which all entries are judged and ribbons and prize money are awarded. Exhibits are on display during the Fall Fair on Saturday, Sept. 7.

All entries for exhibitors wishing to win any of the sponsorships must attach the box or UPC for the entry. Prizes range from $10 product certificates to $25  product certificates in addition to the usual Fall Fair cash prizes.
