Fairs and exhibitions have a significant impact on the economy of British Columbia. They are gathering places for the young and old and offer the public a place to meet, compete and volunteer their services. Not only do fairs and exhibitions have an economic benefit, they also offer many tangible benefits to each and every community.
In order for agricultural fairs and exhibitions to be a member of the BC Association of Agricultural Fairs and Exhibitions they must meet the mandate of the association's bylaws and have 10 recognized agricultural categories.
