Last year, the Summerland Fall Fair Society used the logo and created photo opportunities for the public at the Farmers Tailgate Meet and Greet event.

Last month the summerland Fall Fair received a grant of $6,500 from the Municipality of Summerland, which gives this community event early support.

The 2020 Fair is slated for Saturday, Sept. 26 in Memorial Park, the Summerland Community Arts Centre and surrounding venues.
