The Cobble Hill Fair celebrated its 105th year this summer and the 4-H Club celebrated its 100th year in BC.
“The fair showcases everything about the Cowichan Valley that is good and its emphasis on agriculture is really a reflection of the founding of South Cowichan area,” said Cobble Hill Area Director and long-time fair volunteer Gerry Giles. “It began when people came into the area, cleared land to farm and really that tradition or heritage and culture has continued on through the years. When people come to the fair they get glimpses of our past and what agriculture means to the community.”
If you missed the fair this year, be sure to keep an eye out for the 2015 fair date!
