“Since 1913, the Coombs Fair has been celebrating local agriculture and community. We’re a family affair with lots to do and see. From livestock to garden produce, arts and crafts, photography, needlework, and domestic science, many hours of work go into the exhibits at the fair. Children and youth are an important part of keeping traditional, local agriculture alive in these ever-changing times, and 4-H is a huge component of our fair. We extend a warm welcome to everyone to come and enjoy the Coombs Fair.”

It’s almost difficult to believe that the Coombs Fair is now in its 103rd year, and that more than a century ago now the community came together for the first one.

Wow. Time flies!

Coombs Country Market is one of the most integral stops for any visitor to the Parksville and Qualicum Beach area, whether you’re on your way to Tofino or coming to stay and enjoy the festivities here. This year’s event takes place August 13 and 14 – you can find more information here.

Whether you’re interested in livestock or arts and crafts, seeking some delicious food at an old country market, or looking for a fun way to spend a weekend day, look no further than the Coombs Fair.

Only a 10 to 15 minute drive from our cozy condo rooms and Rathtrevor Beach. Just saying. 😉
