The Arrowsmith Agricultural Association (AAA) is a registered charity and non-profit society with roots back to 1913, when district farmers held the first Coombs Fall Fair to showcase local food crops and livestock. The society conducts the annual Coombs Fair and manages the fairgrounds.Read More
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.

2013 marked the 100th anniversary of the Coombs Fair. To commemorate this milestone, the Arrowsmith Agricultural Association had special pioneer activities at their inaugural 2013 Family Day celebrations, began construction on the Centennial Stage (and threw an old-fashioned box social as a fundraiser for this project), and the annual fair featured historical displays.
