"Celebrating Agriculture and Community since 1913"

Our Facilities

Located at 1014 Ford Road, the Coombs Fairgrounds covers over seven acres of land.  In addition to AAA-sponsored events like the annual Coombs Fair, the fairgrounds are used year-round, and our facilities are available for rent for private functions, commerical events and community groups. Our most frequently used facilities are our full-sized Riding Ring, the new 6000 square-foot Activity Building, and the 2000 square-foot Arrowsmith Hall, which is equipped with a full commercial kitchen.


The Arrowsmith Agricultural Association extends its sincere appreciation to its sponsors for their past and on-going support.

We gratefully acknowledge the financial assistance of the Province of British Columbia.
