The 13th Annual Windermere Fall Fair & Scarecrow Festival.

Sep 16, Windermere –

When autumn is in the air, what could possibly be a better way to celebrate this glorious season than with an old-fashioned country fair? The community of Windermere knows just how to host the best one ever on Sunday, September 16, 2012 from 11am to 4pm.

The Windermere Community Association’s Fall Fair and Scarecrow Festival brings visiitors of all ages from near and far. By the time you arrive, the judges will have made their decisions and the community hall will be filled to the brim with displays of the winning entries in a multitude of categories, all proudly sporting their ribbons. Every kind of vegetable and fruit that can possibly be grown in local home gardens, jams and jellies, pickles (oh, those garlic pickles!), home baking, canning, herbs, flowers, photography and so much more, have been judged and found to be the very best. And the displays of the winning quilts give testimony to the amazing talent of valley quilters.

Outdoors, you can watch demonstrations of bent-willow furniture making, wood-carving, blacksmithing, etc. and admire and purchase the beautiful hand-made jewellery, knitted items, sewing and more. Delightful scarecrows are displayed all around the grounds, unique and hand-made by creative individuals, families or businesses and all entered into the competition.

There are games and contests for the kids, with a dog show, face painting, fish tank, clowns, etc. And all the while, talented local musicians keep toes tapping and add that special fall-fair atmosphere.

If you are going to be in the valley on the 16th of September, plan to come and celebrate the harvest season with the friendly folks in Windermere. We guarantee you’ll be glad you came!

    To get to the Windermere Fall Fair and Scarecrow Festival, just travel south about 5 or so minutes on Highway 93/95 past the Invermere turnoff. Take a right turn at North Street. You may not be able to read a street sign but there will be a sign pointing to the fairgrounds which are at the community hall. You can't miss it!

    Hope you have a blast! ~
