Begin Saturday, October 3 off with our Harvest Breakfast in the Old Town Hall starting at 8:00 am. Later, take a tour of the Old Stone Mill and see how wheat is ground into flour on the millstones. That flour is available for purchase in the gift shop. The blacksmith will also be on site to show his trade plus there will be food vendors set up inside the Mill to sell their wares and a produce sale providing an opportunity to purchase your harvest vegetables.

Lunch will be a BBQ Octoberfest Sausage or Hot Dog and then stick around for a Ham Supper with fall harvest fruits and vegetables hosted by the Delta United Church in the Old Town Hall.




Other events will include a bread making contest, a used book sale, a new book launch, plus rope making and corn shucking demonstrations. There will be lots of games and activities for kids and great musical entertainment provided by Fiddlers Plus.

The Fire Hall Museum will be open, Lower Beverley Lake Park will host wagon rides through the Park and village plus will be holding a 25 per cent sale on camping rates. At the fair grounds the Delta Agricultural Society will be hosting a vendor sale, plus a horse draw.

It is my pleasure to serve as the President of the Delta Agricultural Society during our 185th Anniversary Year. The success of our fair is largely due in part to all of the hard work and planning of our volunteer members along with the generosity of area businesses and individual sponsors. Together with the creativity and enthusiasm of our exhibitors, the above combination produces four interesting and fun filled days for all of us to enjoy.

I hope that this year when you visit the fair, you will notice several changes to our program; all made possible through the efforts of our dedicated volunteers.

Come and experience the fun and excitement of a country fair!
