  Welcome to the Annual
Kootenay Country

Sunday September 10th, 2023

The Kootenay Country Fair is one of the best "family" events hosted in the East Kootenays. It takes place at Fort Steele Heritage Town, located 15 km northeast of Cranbrook on highway 93/95. Click location on the menu bar above to see a map.

You can enter your exhibits for a chance to win the red ribbons, and for the kids we even hand out cash prizes! Besides the chance to show off all your best work, there are also lots of fun and exciting things to see and do at the fair. We have live music, kid's games, vendor tables and more!

Fort Steele also supplies its own unique time travel into the past with gold panning demonstrations, blacksmithing, and many other exciting things to take you back to the days of the old west. Not only do you get to take part in one of the best fairs in the area, you also have access to the entire Heritage Townsite and all the things that both the Fort and the fair have to offer. 

We hope to see you there! For more information on how to enter your exhibits, become a vendor or volunteer at the fair, please see the menu at the top of the screen.


Musicians will be at the fair to entertain and sing!
