Administrative history

Salmon Arm Agricultural Society was formed in 1898 with the mandate to hold an Annual Fair and Cattle Show at Salmon Arm. The first fall fair was held in 1897. A search for permanent fair grounds was actively discussed in 1908. In 1910 a committee recommended the purchase of five acres at an estimated cost of two thousand dollars, the committee further recommended that a skating rink and exhibition building be built at a cost of three thousand dollars.

The Association received its certificate of incorporation in 1911 and then issued twenty-five dollar debentures to raise funds to build a hall. The building was opened in 1912. The fair was cancelled in 1914, for lack of stock sheds. The necessary sheds were completed and the fair was held in 1915.
