  • Q: When do the gates open?
    A: The gates open to the public at 08:00 on Thursday. The only persons allowed in before that are Vendors and Volunteers helping with site set-up.
  • Q: I heard a rumour that alcohol will not be allowed at the fair this year and the vehicles will be searched on the way in and alcohol seized.
    A: The RCMP will probably have checkstops in place between the highway and Fair gates. They will seize open/improperly transported alcohol. They may look for drugs if given reason to do so.
  • You may consume alcohol in the camping areas but not on the Fairgrounds (stages, vendor areas etc). Please drink responsibly.
  • We operate a general store on site. Some things we sell at the store are smokes, beverages, chips,chocolate bars, candy, camping supplies,coffee,convenient store items, and a lot more.
  • Public access begins Thursday at 08:00. The Fair activities officially start 5:30ish PM Friday and end Sunday 5:30ish.
  • Camping is included with a weekend pass.
  • We do have a lot of space but choice of camping is on a first come basis.
  • Camping is "rustic" with scattered fire pits and patron determined camp spaces.
  • There are "loonie showers" in a portable shower structure on site.
  • We do have potable water taps in a couple of locations in the campgrounts. Water is tested by Environmental Health Dept.
  • Ample firewood is provided. Use what you need but please do not hoard. Hording causes "ample" to become scarce.
  • There is a designated family oriented camping area that has an expectation of peace and quiet. Please do not camp there if you expect to party.
  • There is no area designated for RV camping. We do not offer hookups. Remember, generators may annoy your neighbors. Generators including vehicle engines may only be used from 10AM-10PM for no more than one hour at a time.
  • We do not have a sani-dump for RVs. The nearest dumps are located at Lakeshore Campground Joussard; Canadian Tire Slave Lake. Other campgrounds in the area have dumps but you must be a registered guest to use them See: http://www.sanidumps.com
  • The Fair will continue rain or shine. Be prepared for heat, cold, wet or dry!!!
  • We do have security patrolling but valuables should not be left out as bait. Caution is advised.
  • Food vendors are on site and offer a variety of choices in both omnivore and herbivore categories.
  • We strongly discourage all but live music in the camping area. Bring a guitar, join your neighbors.
  • Objectionable or abusive behavior will not be tolerated and your Fair experience could be short lived if you do not comply.
