PRESS RELEASE – Sheep Thrills at the IPE 2018!


The Armstrong Fair is recognized as the largest agricultural fair in British Columbia.  It features an incredible range of exhibits, ranging from livestock (cattle, horses, sheep, swine, goats, llamas) to horticulture, to hobbies and crafts, to domestic skills, and more.  We had 2,252 exhibitors this year with 7,395 exhibits.


















The value and variety of activities, shows, vendors, and exhibits along with the attendance numbers has shown the two local governments of Armstrong-Spallumcheen, the North Okanagan-Shuswap and the rest of the Interior Region the impact of this event on the community.


Each year we select a theme and slogan (tagline).  The theme and slogan are integral to the look and feel of what the fair will feature/honour/celebrate.  For the coming fair in 2018 we are very proud to celebrate our Sheep division – Sheep Thrills at the IPE 2018!    You will see each division honour the sheep theme any way they can.  You might even see a wolf in sheeps clothing.  Be ready for sheep shearing, sheep demos and more!


The board and the management of the IPE would like to thank everyone involved in ensuring the IPE continues it’s agricultural traditions and provides new attractions for all ages.  We look forward to seeing everyone participate in our 119th IPE which will be held from August 29th to September 2, 2018.  See EWE at the fair in 2018!
