What’s New: Rock Creek & Boundary Fair Association Announcement

It is with heavy hearts for the second year in a row that the Board of Directors of the Rock Creek & Boundary Fair Association must announce that the Diamond Jubilee Celebration of the Rock Creek & Boundary Fall Fair scheduled for September 18, 2021, has been postponed to September 17th & 18th, 2022.  This most difficult decision was reached after the recent announcement on August 20, 2021, by the Interior Health Authority, regarding new COVID-19 restrictions surrounding gatherings and events.  The Board never dreamed that we would have to postpone the Fair for a second year.  We were so close and we are all tremendously disappointed. 

The postponement of the 2020 Fair had a substantial financial impact on our organization but with careful management we were able to weather it.  A second year of no Fair will have a deep impact.  We are still proceeding with our 50/50 draw which will take place on Saturday, September 18th at 3:00 pm.  We are also pivoting to a virtual exhibit competition, similar to what was done in 2020, and more details will be released shortly.

Our top priority is the health and safety of our fair-goers, vendors, exhibitors, entertainers, volunteers and the people of the Boundary Communities and everyone from across BC and beyond who support our Fair every year.  Over the next week we will be contacting all the attractions, vendors, exhibitors and sponsors who had committed to making this year’s Fair a success.  For those who purchased tickets for the Fair, those tickets will be honoured for our 2022 Diamond Jubilee Celebration.  

The Rock Creek & Boundary Fair Association would like to sincerely thank all of our loyal sponsors, vendors, exhibitors, entertainers, attendees and volunteers for their unwavering support over the years and we are looking forward, with anticipation, to a better 2022.
