South Country Fair (Fort MacLeod, AB) July 17-19, began as a camping weekend for several local folk clubs in 1987; intended for organizers to get to know each other better, it morphed into an annual 3-day event, open to the public. They’re still trying to get to know one another, but The Fair seems to be doing quite well. The mission of South Country Fair has always been to expand cultural horizons in Southern Alberta by giving community members the opportunity to experience a diversity of music, spoken word and performance art in the context of a three-day, camping-style, old-world outdoor folk music festival.
The South Country Fair has received an ‘A’ grade on the Canadian Festival Report Card for the past two years.
