Get the family together for the Cobble Hill Fair at the historic fairgrounds on Saturday, Aug. 27 from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

This hallmark event, begun in 1909, showcases all that is great about rural living. Cobble Hill and the surrounding area was founded on the agricultural industry.

Every year, the fair is alive with activity and entertainment for the whole family, celebrating the past while cultivating the future.

The Cobble Hill Fair is indeed a beloved institution for many Cowichan residents: a superb way to bid farewell to summer while celebrating everything we’ve all enjoyed during the past year.

Everything kicks off with a pancake breakfast. but after that there is the horse show, the parade, outdoor and indoor exhibits and demonstrations of old-time skills.

There are games for kids, the hay-bale toss, the ever-popular livestock shows, stage entertainment, food galore and even vintage machinery.

Well, you get the picture.

So, pack up the family and head to the fairgrounds for a great day.
