Black Creek Fall Fair
Saturday, September 17th, 2011
9:00 AM to 4:00 PM
Mark your calendars! The Black Creek Community Fair is coming up! Admission to the Fair is by donation.
The goal of the Fair is to celebrate the community of Black Creek and all it has to offer. The Fair has also traditionally been the main fundraiser for the Black Creek Community Association (BCCA), a non-profit, charitable organization that oversees the Black Creek Community Centre. The aim this year is to fundraise specifically for an extended hours access system for the Community Centre’s fitness room.
We will start the event with a pancake breakfast, beginning at 9:00 a.m., with entertainment by local guitarist Jeff Drummond.
At 10:00 a.m. we will feature a family walk/run through the Community Centre’s trail. Prizes will be available to participants.
A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held shortly after to commemorate the new addition to the Community Centre – two hand-carved poles made by local carver Bob Hayhurst.
Throughout the day there will be great food and a variety of craft vendors, a silent auction, 50/50 draws, a kids carnival, pony rides, a petting zoo, and the Island Farms Kids Tent featuring Farmer Vicki and Daisy the Cow. Awesome entertainment will be ongoing throughout the day including Larry Hansen, Sockeye, Fiddlejam, RNR, Rokkit Dog and Kickback.
There will also be demos and displays from local community organizations such as the Black Creek Fibre Arts Guild, the Black Creek Halbe Hall Society, the Black Creek Old Age Pensioners #126, the Oyster River Enhancement Society, Mountainaire Avian Rescue Society, the Oyster River Volunteer Fire/Rescue and V.I.B.E.S (Vancouver Island Brazilian Embroidery Stitchers).
Don’t miss out on our great new feature this year called the Travel the Fair Passport. Fair attendees will be able to pick up their passports at the gate; completed passports will be entered to win a prize.
