Provincial Winter Fair, Kamloops BC
The fair occurs on a smaller scale, but with the same heart, enthusiastic and dedicated volunteers of the past. The fair is still a tradition for multi-generational families, however there are numerous newcomers. The livestock show is still the heart of the fair, but in the past we have expanded to include various other groups including craft and food vendors, as well the first annual Top Hand Ranch Competition in 2008.
In 2016, we moved to the gorgeous grounds at Circle Creek Ranch in Kamloops. We are proud to offer highly entertaining family events, the SuperDogs and activities, in addition to showcasing local talent on the Main Stage.
In 2018, in honour of our 80th Anniversary—we were pleased to showcase our region’s local fare with a delectable wine pairing event—Grapes & Grill on the Saturday of the show. The local beef & sheep was donated by Jason & Vickie Brandon and Riverbend Orchards. The menu was paired with our local winery, Harper’s Trail, fantastic wine selection. And then on Sunday, we honoured our ranching and Winter Fair Pioneers with the Pioneer’s Tea.
We hope everyone can come out and experience history taking place by either exhibiting in the fair or just coming down to the fairgrounds!
