The Cloverdale Rodeo and County Fair is an annual exhibition bringing together country-lovers from across the Lower Mainland.

The family-friendly fair has cowboys competing for over $300,000 in prize money in numerous shows and midway attractions. Additionally, you can experience a lumberjack show, a BBQ Rib Fest, live country performances, and dozens of rides. The Agri-Zone also includes a petting zoo showcasing a variety of animals such as miniature donkeys, llamas, alpacas, sheep, horses, pigs and more. Capping off the first night of the fair is a firework celebration starting around 9:30 PM.
In addition to the rodeo shows, rides, and food, a big draw to the event is the live country performances!
