Admission by donation. Minimum $10This will be the 10th annual festival which originated through Eva Levesque and her crew. The idea arose while sitting around the kitchen table drinking coffee one afternoon and has grown into this amazing festival fondly called "Longstock" by its organizers. Eva diligently searches out fantastic Alberta talent for the music-fest and crafters. Rick Smith does the same with our talented Alberta artists.
There will be a Beer tent and the usual hamburger and hotdog munchies, t-shirt sales and featured artists CD's for sale. Click here to see the musicians lineup and performance times

Breaking News:
The 2017 Fair Schedule is now available.  There is so much to see and do, all at no additional cost beyond admission.  You can also shop at the famous Millarville Farmers’ Market both days.

The Priddis & Millarville Fair is one of Southern Alberta’s oldest and largest country fairs. Located at the Millarville Racetrack and co-hosted with the Millarville Farmers’ Market, the Fair is the place to come to learn about Alberta’s agricultural history, touch the animals, view the creations of local artisans, gardeners, photographers and wood workers. We have antique tractors, cars and trucks that span generations, horse riding events of all types, and contests – pie eating, rooster crowing, watermelon eating, youth talent. 

With products made, baked or grown in Alberta, you can support local farmers and crafters while learning about our rich agricultural history. From field crops to honey bees and whether it is observing how livestock is graded or taking time to marvel at the great display of judged entries, there is no shortage of things to do at the Fair! Interested in home cooking & baking, arts & handicrafts, fibre arts, photography, woodworking, flowers, fruits and vegetables? Then we have something for you.

Anyone and everyone is welcome and encouraged to enter as an exhibitor at the Fair. The 2017 Priddis & Millarville Fair Book  is the place to find all the exhibit classes. You can  enter your exhibits online or use the entry forms in the back of the Fair Book.  Entry deadline is August 11.

The judges use Alberta Agriculture Judging standards. Learn about how Horticulture  and Cooking, Sewing & Handicrafts  are judged to help you prepare your exhibits.

The Fair succeeds because of the outstanding support from our community – financial contributions, volunteer time and exhibitor participation. It takes community involvement in all 3 areas to create this spectacular country fair, filled with Western charm that generations of families look forward to each August.

Interested in supporting the Fair? It’s never too late to make a donation! To volunteer, contact us at [email protected] .
