Photo Collection Features Summerland Fall Fair Theme – Keremeos Review

A photo collection, curated by the Summerland Fall Fair Society and the Summerland Museum and Archives, is on display and can be viewed online or in a book.

In 2021, the Fall Fairs Society and Museum and Archives invited Summerland residents to submit photos and captions showing things they had grown, sewn, baked, built, crafted, or otherwise created during the pandemic.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 Summerland Fall Fair has been reduced. Farm produce and other displays were set up outside for a day in late September, but traditional events and displays did not take place.

The photo project was born in response to these restrictions.

“The project is an attempt to capture this interesting moment in our history, show Summerlanders who we are (and how interesting we are) and build community by celebrating our accomplishments, which is what the Fall Fair is all about. is always striving to do,” Katie Sardinha, organizer of the photo project said at the time.

Submissions can now be viewed online at https://www.summerlandfallfair.ca. The photos and captions were also compiled and published as a book documenting this moment in our town’s history, along with an introduction and a brief history of the Summerland Fall Fair. Copies of the book can be viewed by visiting the Summerland Museum, the Summerland Art Gallery, and the Summerland Branch of the Okanagan Regional Library.

For anyone wishing to own a copy of the book, the Summerland Fall Fair Society will be taking orders for printed copies until May 1st. Books are $30 each and can be purchased by mailing a check to the Summerland Fall Fair Society, 9525 Wharton St, Summerland, BC V0H 1Z2, along with a name and contact information. Email summerlandfallfair@gmail.com with any questions.
