Lawn tractor races are always among the highlights at the annual Golden Fall Faire

Golden Fall Faire returns with all of you favourite events and activities

Guests will see their favourites; the competition tent, tractor races, live music, a kids corner full of activities, and of course food.

The Golden Fall Faire is back this September, and will be taking place at the Golden and District Museum for the second year in a row.

“It went really well last year, except for the weather,” said Colleen Palumbo, executive director of the museum, and the faire’s main organizer.

Guests can expect to see all their usual favourites; the competition tent, tractor races, live music, a kids corner full of activities, and of course food.

This year guests will be treated to something a little special. The old railway station in the back of the property is currently being restored, and although not finished, will be open for the Fall Faire.

“We’re going to have our competition tables in there this year,” said Palumbo. “So that will be a good mid-point unveiling for the building.”

Last year the wind and rain was getting  to the competition vegetables and baking under the tent, so this year participants can feel safe with their goodies inside the old station.

Also new this year, The Rotary Club of Golden will be hosting a beer festival in conjunction with the faire.

The Fall Faire is on Saturday Sept. 10 at the Golden Museum on 13th Street South, starting at 11 a.m.

There are also competition booklets with all of the rules available at the museum for anyone thinking about entering.

“It’s just such a great family event. It’s one of my favourite things I get to do every year,” said Palumbo.

Check back in next week’s issue of The Golden Star for details on the beer festival.
