Fun for all at Ashcroft Fair

A look at some of the entertainment lined up for this year's Fall Fair in Ashcroft

The Ashcroft and District Fall Fair has some great entertainment lined up for this year’s Fair. On Sunday, Sept. 8 come listen to the Country and Eastern, roots and branches, down in the dirt stuff, including country, blues, bluegrass, and the Western Swing music of Back Door Slam. The Kamloops Old Time Fiddlers will have you dancing in the aisle as always, and for the kids (and the kids at heart) there’s Filetta Fish and her One Woman Circus, who will have everyone laughing.

We are excited to announce that we will be having an Amazing Race for the 12-16-year-olds. Teams of two will race to various stations and complete fun challenges. Pre-registration is required, and will be available on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 6-7, at the Drylands Arena. Check us out on Facebook or visit our website,, for more information.

Come enjoy the day at the Fair, Sunday Sept. 8 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, at the Drylands Arena in Ashcroft.
