Creston Valley Fall Fair looking for entries in hobby categories

Web Lead

Are you one of the many talented hobbyists in Creston and area? This is the article for you — then tell your friends.

The Creston Valley Fall Fair is looking for entries in the arts, crafts and hobbies section. Agricultural areas are a great incubator for the creative spirit. People used their creativity to enhance their homes and yards and to stretch the family funds. It is in this spirit that this section appears in an agricultural fair.

The Creston Valley Fall Fair has been happening in Creston for 90 years and over that time has been able to display much work by artisans. There is a complete list of entries and regulations in the fall fair booklet, which is available free in most stores in Creston.

As with all fairs, it is the people who enter and take the time to bring their entries to the fair. As conveners, we work all year to try to create an attractive venue, but it is the entries that make the sections come alive!  There is a small financial reward for the top three entries and if you really want to get into the competition, perhaps you would like to compete for the special prizes or ribbons or the aggregate awards.

Entering is easy. All the information in the fall fair booklet, and forms can be filled out at www.crestonbc.com/fallfair. Student should also look also at the students’ section (L) and perhaps can enter there as well.

This is a friendly competition, and conveners wish everyone the best and hope to see you at the fair.

For more information on the arts, crafts and hobbies section, contact Karen Sabiston at 250-428-9996.
