The 3rd annual Fall FAIRfield: Harvest Fete is the FGCA’s give-back event to thank the residents of Fairfield/Gonzales for their ongoing support in a way that infuses energy and comradery into our engaged community. Come celebrate harvest and the changing of seasons among the Garry oaks, giant papier mache apples, and flower Mandala. Enjoy the sights and sounds of neighbours and children partaking in weaving, stilt walking, scarecrow making, live roots music by the Sweet Lowdown, call dances, and local food.
