Each year, Yorkton’s Summer Fair gets the town together to celebrate fun in the sun and spend time together. This year, the fair returns from July 4th to 7th, when the Gallagher Centre and surrounding areas will host thousands of visitors.
The Summer Fair is a classic for all ages. There’s horse racing, cattle shows, shopping and exhibits, and of course the iconic carnival midway with games and rides. There is also nightly entertainment in front of the grandstand, with live music and much more. You can also look forward to classic carnival treats like cotton candy, popcorn, ice cream, and more. Be sure not to miss the annual parade which draws huge crowds every year – nothing better than watching parade floats go by with fun music playing and the sun shining down. Stay tuned as the festival approaches for more details on the lineup and schedule!
Did you know? The Summer Fair has been held every year in Yorkton for over a century! And in 1996, the annual Yorkton Summer Fair was voted Regional Fair of the Year from a selection of over 800 fairs throughout Canada.
