Parents should refrain from the natural urge to help prepare exhibits. The judge can always tell and will mark accordingly.  Where the age is requested, please use a “sticky note” that can easily be removed after judging.  Please do not write the age of the Junior on the entry tag.  Parents and Guardians are reminded to check the exhibit to ensure all personal information is removed or is properly covered during judging and displaying.

Be sure to code your entry tag accurately. M = Ages 8 years and under; N = Ages 9 years to 11 years; P = Ages 12 years to 17 years.  Examples on entry tags, M32 = Drawing (Coloured), Age 7; N81 = Model from scratch, Age 10; P94 = Quilting, Age 15

Special Thanks

On behalf of the Peachland Fall Fair, and the Peachland community at large, we would like to extend a warm thank you to the judges! Our Fair could not have happened without their expertise and generosity. A community like Peachland works best when its members take an active role in activities.

"Thank you for coming forward and donating your time to judge all the entries in the 2017 Peachland Fall Fair."


The Peachland Fall Fair is always a big event that takes a lot of organizing and without the help of dedicated volunteers this event would not be possible. Thank you to all the volunteers for donating countless hours to ensure the success of the annual Peachland Fall Fair.

Those who can, do. Those who can do more, volunteer.
