The Pender Islands Fall Fair is still a volunteer-run, non-commercial agricultural fair. It provides a structure and opportunity for our community to celebrate the best our Islands have to offer, gives to all who enter an opportunity to exhibit their best, and to those who visit a chance to see the talent our community fosters.

Pender Island's best farm-fresh: Vegetables, fruits, flowers, goat cheese, eggs, baked goods, jams & jellies, sushi, plants, art, crafts, jewellery, music and brunch bites!

In the Spring of 2012 the P.I. Farmers' Institute sponsored a Cheesemaking Workshop with David Asher Rotsztain at the Community Hall Kitchen.

The workshops emphasized ‘natural cheesemaking,’ with a focus on simple, hands-on techniques that can be easily reproduced at home.
