A big Happy Birthday to Abbotsford’s own Agrifair!
From July 29 to July 31, Agrifair marks 113 years of bringing the community together to celebrate Abbotsford’s rich agriculture roots with a host of fun-filled, family-friendly events and activities.
“The Abbotsford Agrifair is a piece of Abbotsford’s history and is an important event for our community,” says fair manager Graham Vanstone.
The three-day event brings together familiar favourites like the Country Horse Classic with special guests like the Strathcona Mounted Troop, who will open up the event with its 25-member troop and their horses performing their musical ride!
“We are excited to say things are finally back to normal at the Agrifair, and to welcome the community back to celebrate one of Abbotsford’s favourite summer events,” says Vanstone.
You’ll also find some new features and faces sure to keep you entertained throughout the weekend. Highlights include live music performances everyday, with concert admission included in the ticket price. Performances are scheduled every day of the fair, but gates close at 9 p.m. nightly, so be sure to arrive nice and early if you hope to catch one of the later performances!
