Feds find funds for Aldergrove festivities

Langley MP Mark Warawa has announced federal funding for Aldergrove Fair Days.

“The Aldergrove Festival Days Society has received federal funding of $3,000 to help present the 21st annual Aldergrove Fair Days, held on July 22nd and July 23rd,” says Warawa.

“I always look forward to the Artisan’s Showcase, which features presentations of artistic displays and demonstrations, such as pottery, photography, spinning and weaving wool, 2-D art making and wood working,” says Warawa. “I love to judge the chili cook off, and taking part in the parade, but one of my favourite parts of Aldergrove Fair Days is the Fast draw competition.

“I’d like to thank the organizers of the Aldergrove Fair Days for creating this incredible family-friendly event that draws together the people of Aldergrove, and that encourages tourism, which benefits our local businesses.  See you at the Fair!”

The Government of Canada created the Building Communities Through Arts and Heritage program in September 2007. This program provides Canadians with more opportunities to take part in local activities that present arts and culture and celebrate local history and heritage. This program will benefit many community events and celebrations throughout Canada this year.
