  • Start Your Red Ribbon Planning!

    September 7, 2019 is the 30th Annual Chestermere Country Fair! This is the longest running annual event in Chestermere, so you don’t want to miss out on this one! As always, the Rocky View Chestermere Agricultural Society will be holding the Red Ribbon Competition. This is where you get to display your best art, sewing, photography, handicrafts, baking, honey, wine, vegetables, flowers, jams and pickles to your community, and maybe win a ribbon or prize for your effort.

    If you want to participate, it’s time to start those seeds, test those baking recipes, buy some fabric, set up your easel, or do whatever it is that you do best. The Red Ribbon class list will be coming out soon. Watch our Facebook Page, website and newspaper articles for when it’s published. Can’t wait? Check out last year’s booklet available at https://www.chestermereagriculturalsociety.com/red-ribbon-competition to get an idea of the classes available and rules. Note that some classes and rules may change for this year.

    Or, please join the fun and friendly Red Ribbon Committee and help us out. We can’t do it without many hands. Email chestermereagsociety@gmail.com if you want to join us. A reminder that all entrants into the Country Fair Red Ribbon Competition will be required to have a current Agricultural Society membership. Memberships are only $5.00 for a single or $10.00 for a family and can be purchased on the Agricultural Society’s website mentioned above. However, entering items in the Red Ribbon is FREE and unlimited!

    See you at the Fair!
