Submitted by Linda Louis–The 32nd annual Tlell Fall Fair is the earliest fall fair in British Columbia. We are a small one-day agricultural fair held in Tlell. This year’s theme is ” Haida Gwaii – Our Garden of Eating.” The fair show cases the Islands culture, arts and agriculture from animals, handicrafts, baking and garden flowers and produce. Anyone can enter! No matter how old or how young you are. It is a wonderful opportunity for you to show your handiwork, gardening, canning or baking skills. Let’s see how you use the theme in one of our many challenges, Photography, quilting, flower arranging, scarecrow to name a few. The craft challenge will be announced within the next month. Doug is putting out a challenge to all the bakers. He’d like to challenge you to bring a decorated cake based on this year’s theme. A few years ago, we had a poster contest. It was well received, so we decided to do it again only change it. Instead of doing a poster we’d like you to make the colouring page for in the catalogue. Here is what we ask: 1.
