From the President
Looking back on 2022, the Cowichan Exhibition, the year’s main event, was the most successful one held at this location, and in all probability is the most successful one ever. This was made possible by the diminished risk from the pandemic, good planning, good weather and the willingness of people in the community to attend a large gathering. Looking forward to the 2023 Fall Fair on September 15, 16 & 17, planning is underway. This year’s theme: The Very Hungry Caterpillar, is inspired by that wonderful children’s book by Eric Carle. We hope to see lots of very colourful entries among the Hall exhibits!
The Exhibition Grounds is the venue for more than just our annual Fall Fair. The facility is available year round to rent for large and small events. If you need a space for half a day or a number of days, please contact us at (250) 748-0822 or at email@example.com to see if we’re the perfect location for your event.

Prior to 1948, the Cowichan Exhibition Society and the Cowichan Agricultural Society operated under the same leadership, beginning with Archdeacon Reece in 1868, the first year of the fair. This list reflects the leadership of the Cowichan Exhibition Society when it became a Board on its own.
