In 1873, the non-profit Chilliwack and District Agricultural Society incorporated and began producing the Chilliwack Exhibition and Fair. The Fair has run continuously since then and is the second-oldest fair in British Columbia.
A Community Event
The culture and heritage of Chilliwack is what makes our community strong and unique. The Fair is an opportunity to celebrate all that the community has to offer and despite being the foundation on which it was built, the Fair is about much more than agriculture. We are proud to feature many local artists, organizations and businesses throughout the Fair. Opportunities to participate in the Fair are countless, whether as a 4-H member showing a favourite animal, an entrant in the annual Fruit Pie Baking Contest, an event sponsor, or a volunteer in any of a number of different capacities during fair time.
The Many Partners
The Chilliwack Agricultural Society enjoys strong relationships with our long term partners and strives to develop new partnerships in the community. Some of our many partners have included the Atchelitz Threshermen’s Association, the Chilliwack Rodeo Association, Chilliwack 4-H District, the Chilliwack Arts Council, Chilliwack Rotary, Chilliwack Kiwanis, the Chilliwack Schools Garden Program, the City of Chilliwack, Tourism Chilliwack, Heritage Park and the University of the Fraser Valley.
