Calmar Fair Days Bench Show

Dear Parents & Students:

The Calmar Fair is being held on August 19, 2017 and we are extending an invitation to all families to come out and participate in our Bench Show, the “Old Fashioned Country Fair”. This is a family friendly competition for all ages and a great way to see what our kids have done in school or elsewhere so we can showcase their talents and abilities. The Calmar Fair Bench Show is taking place in the Calmar Curling Arena during the Calmar Fair, with entries being submitted on Thursday, August 17. Judging will take place on Friday, August 18 and the Show will be open to the public on Saturday, August 19 from 8 AM – 3:30 PM.

This is an opportunity for anyone to compete with any project or interest that they may have. It does not matter if your interest is in art, writing, baking, photography, woodworking or horticulture, we have a category and competition for you! The Bench Show is the perfect place for you to display and compete with any of your school projects or work that you have done during the school year.

This year we are excited to again include: Lego Construction

There will be many different categories in which to compete. If you like to build with Lego, here is your opportunity to make your masterpiece, showcase it to the community and compete against other lego-minded kids. Let’s make this the “BIGGEST LEGO COMPETITION IN ALBERTA!”

There will also be a Tractor Pull Competition!

This competition is divided into four age groups:

4-5 year olds

6-7 year olds

8-10 years olds

11-12 year olds

Register at the Bench Show on Saturday, August 19. The competition will be running throughout the day.
