Join us!


Come celebrate the autumn season with some good old-fashioned fun at the Williams Lake Fall Fair!

Every September, when the leaves change colour and the days become shorter, the Williams Lake Harvest Fair brings communities in the Cariboo Chilcotin together for one weekend.

Our mission statement: The Williams Lake Harvest Fair through hosting an annual exhibition will encourage a medium of exchange of information on the development of rural lifestyle, agriculture awareness and development, and promote the 4-H program.

If you eat, you’re involved in agriculture!

We pride ourselves on being a country fair, where our #1 focus is to show our visitors the importance agriculture plays in every one of our lives.

The fair takes place at Stampede Park, 880 Mackenzie Avenue South in Williams Lake,

Message from the WLHF President


Message from the WLHF President
It’s time for the 42nd annual Williams Lake Harvest Fair! We are honoured to host this annual celebration of agriculture in the Cariboo, Coast and Chilcotin Regions.

The big toys and entertainment will all be going on beside the Curling Club. Don’t miss the Exhibit Hall (Curling Club) over the weekend as it will have all the fabulous home arts and quilts!

The Gymkhana will continue on Sunday at the outdoor Trail Riders Arena. There will be new entertainment on the stage adjacent to the Curling Club for both days of the fair for your enjoyment, featuring Uncle Chris the Clown, some new surprises and Ted Couling!

And of course we couldn’t do all this without the help of our many volunteers and sponsors, thank-you!!!

Hopefully we will see you at the Fair, September 7th and 8th.

Williams Lake Harvest Fair President, Tammy Tugnum
