What began as a camping weekend for several local folk clubs in 1987 intended for organizers to get to know each other better morphed into an annual 3-day event. The mission of South Country Fair has always been to expand cultural horizons in Southern Alberta by giving our citizens the opportunity to experience a diversity of music, spoken word and performance art in the context of a three-day, camping-style, old-world  outdoor folk music festival.
