For over a century and a half, the Saanich Fair has been a staple for Western Canada, and this year will be no different.
This agricultural fair is about to enter its 151st year during Labour Day weekend.
Between August 31st and September 2nd, the Saanich Fairground at 1528 Stellys Cross Rd will once again be transformed into a wonderland for all ages as the Saanich Fair returns to Vancouver Island.
And with it, the tradition of Victoria Buzz giveaways continues, as one lucky follower has a chance to win a whopping $350 prize package to the Saanich Fair this year.
Music, food, festivities galore
The 3-day event will feature performers and headliners including Canadian rock band Prism on Saturday night, and April Wine on Sunday night.
True to its agrarian roots, the fair will also showcase up to 27 types of farm animals, from chickens to alpacas, and everything in between.
As always, the festivities will be augmented by its extensive midway rides section featuring fan favourites like the Carousel, Tilt-a-Whirl, Hurricane, and for more experienced fair enthusiasts, the Zipper!
Fair admission tickets are available on the Saanich Fair website for $14 or they can be purchased at the gate. Kids and seniors get in for $8.50. Children under 6 get in for free.
Presale midway ride wristbands will be available for $32 at the Saanich Fair office until August 29th.
