Vancouver Island Exhibition 2012

Vancouver Island Exhibition
August 17, 18 & 19, 2012

Over 100 years young and going strong, this years Fair will be sure to have something for everyone, young and old, country mouse and city mouse.

The VIEx continues to advance the education of agriculture and showcases local farmers and 4-H clubs, bringing agricultural awareness to the community. To this end there are livestock displays and examples of the gardens bounty with prize winning veggies competing for top honors. Jam, jellies and other homemade delights are also on display.

There is also entertainment featured on the Thrifty Foods Main Stage on Friday, Saturday and Sunday with Valdy, Que Bola Magic, The Jardines, Dallas Smith, The Royal Canadians and Glass Tiger's Alan Frew to name a few.

In addition of course there are the thrills and excitement of the midway which is always a hit for kids of all ages from 5 to 105. This year promises to add some new excitement with the addition of the Kamikaze brought to the VIEx by Shooting Star Amusements. This ride is described as being no kiddie ride, it is BIG and towers over 60 feet in the air!
