Country Fest has been celebrated in Maple Ridge for more than 100 years! The tradition at the Albion Fairgrounds continues with FREE admission (parking is $2); loads of family-friendly entertainment; crazy lawnmower races; animal exhibitions of all sorts…the list of activities and entertainment goes on!
Normally the festival is a 2-day event, but in light of COVID the organizers are extending the event to 2 weeks!
July 17th – 23rd : 4-H week with over thirty clubs and over 400 4-H members planning to attend, in three different time slots.
July 24th & 25th : “Country Fest at Home”, a first class two day live streamed concert. Between each band “Agriculture Up Close and Personal” video clips of some of what visitors would typically see at a non-COVID festival (e.g. sheep shearer, sheep dog/ducks, horse shoeing and 4-H shows).
July 26th – 29th : Home Arts & Garden competitions, the other historical element of the festival, will take over the Fairgrounds Exhibition building.
At the time of writing the final details of Country Fest were awaiting confirmation (and awaiting the move to the next phase of the BC Re-opening Plan). Please continue to check their website for more information.
