The Summerland Fall Fair will happen later this month, although the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic will affect the event.
On Sunday, Sept. 26, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., vendor booths will be set up along Main Street in Summerland.
Instead of the standard fair, farmers from Summerland will have display booths and tables set up during the Summerland Farmers Market that day.
The booths will include farm produce, community groups, businesses, artisans and food trucks.
Organizers say Interior Health regulations will be maintained. Masks will be recommended and physical distancing and the flow-through street market will be in place for the event.
In addition, the Summerland Fall Fair and the Summerland Museum have teamed up to do a photo showcase project, featuring pictures of things Summerlanders have grown, sewn, baked or made.
The photos will be released online and will also be compiled into a book.
“The project is an attempt to capture this interesting moment in our history, to show Summerlanders who we are (and how interesting we are) and to build community by celebrating our accomplishments, which is something that the Fall Fair has always strived to do,” said Katie Sardinha, organizer of the photo project. “We would love to have every person in Summerland participate and be seen in this showcase.”
The deadline for entries in the photo project is Nov. 1.
