Abbotsford Agrifair: Best little country fair on earth

Richards Racing Pigs & Ducks, Laughing Stock Ranch Pony rides, the West Coast Lumberjack Show, FMX Motorsports and so much more.

Demo Derby - Abbotsford Agrifair. Not quite the Batmobile!



Agrifair is the place to be July 29th to 31st 2016.

Thank you to Melanie Kish, Abbotsford Agrifair, for providing us an exclusive look into the plans for this year’s event.

“Abbotsford Agrifair” the name implies cows and tractors, which we are; however we are so much more!  We are the new fair for the new millennial. Traditionally when people think of an agricultural fair they think animals, tractors and farmers.  We have all that – but we have so much more for the everyday guest. And so much is NEW this year that should you think “I went last year, I don’t need to go again” we can only say – put that thought aside, open your mind and read this:

As you enter the fair you will be greeted by llamas, rabbits, donkeys, and maybe even a buffalo – not the fair you thought is it?

New this year is a Fraserway RV FREE family fun building.  A place to get out of the heat but still stay on site, complete with a mothers/fathers room which will include FREE diapers, wipes and some water to wet your whistle and maybe even a melting down child’s whistle.  This Family venue has only allowed a few specially selected vendors focusing on family and home life. Usborne books will be located by the literacy area, Epicure Selections and Partylite have wonderful home products for any generation.  As well, Young Living Essential Oils, 2M Productions with jewelry and specialty felts for children, and other new vendors including Your Inspiration at Home!  These are just a few of the family based vendors Agrifair has included in the family venue. Also inside this building haven is FREE minigolf, FREE rockwall climbing, FREE playstation area, FREE reading area, FREE Science World shows, FREE playtime with lego and Keva building areas, FREE arts & crafts and more!

Venturing outside into the beautiful sunshine, are returning favorites Richards Racing Pigs & Ducks, Laughing Stock Ranch Pony rides, the West Coast Lumberjack Show and plenty of burgers, pop and brew! Friday eve and twice on Saturday & Sunday is the Motorsports Show featuring the Demolition Derby, a two plus hour show on smashing and performance and NEW Global FMX motorsports and sport bike show, wow those guys can really jump and spin!  Take the kids and let them try out gymnastics for FREE in the Twisters gymnastic building, and this year ICW/EECW wrestling welcomes special guest Jimmy Hart.

Feel the need for some hands on educational components? NEW is a “Gate to Plate” area focusing on everything from full circle recycling, milking demos, shearing & horseshoeing demos to agri-tours.  Now you have the opportunity to really see where your food comes from.

NEW for both parents and preteens is the Segway education road safety zone, fun times for every member of the family between the ages of 8 to 80!  Need more speed?  The pay as you play Drifting Go-Kart area is NEW this year as well.

Need some midway action? NEW to Agrifair is Shooting Star Amusements where the rides keep you spinning and flying high all weekend long!  Want more action; but not into rides – checkout the Thunderbowl.  Home of returning favorite Mini Chuckwagon racing and NEW attraction the Chariot Racing Teams.  Don’t tell these little ponies that only size large matters, their hearts are huge even though their bodies are petite.

Strolling around wondering what to do?  Check out the all NEW feature of roving entertainment of clowns, magicians, drum bands, balloon artists and NEW collaboration with Gallery 7 hosting on site games and instant cash prizes!

Need to cool down in the evening?  NEW entertainment on the main stage will feature Fraser Valley Music Award performers, a music contest hosted by CiVL Radio, followed by NEW family comedy show from Yuk Yuk’s Abbotsford. Then sit back on your blankey or lawn chair and watch a movie on a 33 foot movie screen, which is also NEW this year.  Sunday will feature our traditional praise and worship music, NEW headliner Sidewalk Prophets.

Don’t forget the BARNS! 4-H shows and competitions are on all weekend and the Country Horse Classic show is always a hit.  The Pioneer Barn will once again host the antique farm machinery displays and demos.

So much to see, so much to do, and so much is FREE – why wouldn’t you come to the best little country fair on EARTH!!! Get ready Abbotsford and beyond…….Agrifair is the best country fair on earth! www.agrifair.ca
