The Chilliwack Fair is celebrating its 148th year in unique style, and it all starts tonight (Aug. 7).
Rather than scratch the whole fair, the board decided to mix and match some old favourite events with new technology. Tonight kicks off with a special concert with local musicians Todd Richard and Appaloosa.
This concert is a drive-in, and social distancing rules are strictly in place. Tickets are not available on site.
On Saturday, Aug. 8, there will be another in-person event, with the Mountain Trail Horse Show, followed by a Gymkhana Horse Show on Sunday. Then, on Aug. 14, there will be a drive-in movie night, featuring Toy Story 4.
Other events to catch at the Fair include goat yoga, crafts via Zoom, and many more concerts. All on-site events require a pre-purchased ticket and all current Covid-19 rules will apply. Events run until Aug. 16, including several online portions of the fair.
