HELLO AUGUST - Things to do in Abbotsford this month!

Things to do in Abbotsford in August or Things to do in August in Abbotsford.

I’m not sure which way sounds better but it's already August which means summer is halfway over.

Let's make the most of this last month of summer before we are thrown into the ‘back to school’ chaos. Here are a few things happening around town.

Abbotsford Agrifair

The ‘Best little country fair since 1911’ is back August 4th – 6th.  Kick off this month with a visit to the best little country fair around.  The Agrifair has something for everyone...community exhibits, show barns, 4-H, rodeo, animals, midway rides, fair food, carnival games, concerts and so much more.  There's something for everyone at the Agrifair.

Abbotsford International Airshow - https://www.abbotsfordairshow.com/events/performers/

This aviation festival has been going strong for over 5 decades.  People come from near and far to take in this aviation exhibition and airshow event.  The Abbotsford Airshow kicks off with a Friday afternoon twilight show that is quite spectacular and runs through the weekend from August 11th – 13th.

Automobiles Anyone?

If Agrifairs and airplanes are not your thing you can check out the automobiles around town.

  • Downtown Abbotsford Car Show  on August 19th will have the historic downtown Abbotsford streets lined with shiny cars and hot rods to envy.
  • Hougen Park out in Sumas Prairie will host another car show. Come down to the 34th annual Hougen Park Show N Shine to check out the display of cars in the park on Aug 20, 2017 8:00am - 3:00pm

Cinema Under the Stars

There is something magical about an outdoor movie experience.  On Friday August 25th at Exhibition Park showing a ‘tale as old as time’ Beauty & the Beast.  Thanks Envision, I love that movie.


Now those are just a few of the festivals & activities around town but who's kidding who, there is lots more to see and do around these parts...visit the Tourism Abbotsford website to find out more.

ALSO…the latest tourism Abbotsford publication is out and not to be missed.  Eat, Play, Love Abby: Your Guide to Explore Abbotsford looks incredible and has tons of great ideas.


Whatever you're up to we hope you enjoy your August!
