Abbotsford’s annual Agrifair opened Friday afternoon (July 30) and continues through Sunday.
This year is a limited in-person event after the 2020 version was held as a drive-thru due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This year’s event was also initially planned as a drive-thru, but organizers announced in early July, after pandemic restrictions were lifted, that it would return almost to normal.
