Harvest Fair returning to heritage South Surrey farm Sept. 23

Traditional event to be co-hosted by neigbouring Indigenous learning house

An annual South Surrey tradition that helps kick off the fall season is set for Sept. 23 at Historic Stewart Farm, and organizers say this year’s Harvest Fair includes a whole new crop of events.

Set for 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the 13723 Crescent Rd. farm, the fair this year will celebrate harvest season from multiple perspectives, through additions offered by event co-host Totest Aleng: Indigenous Learning House.

Opened in June 2023 in Elgin Heritage Park, the learning house supports Indigenous cultural practices, artists-in-residence, workshops, events and public and school programs.

At the fair, artist collective Cedar Sage and Sweetgrass will be on site with Indigenous vendors, a corn husk doll workshop and a singing and drumming performance by Madelaine McCallum.

“We are so excited and honoured to expand our existing event,” farm curator Jerrilin Spence said in a news release.

“We welcome visitors to experience our site, yet encourage visitors to enjoy the event while reflecting on how their own backgrounds or traditions celebrate the harvest season, a time that holds significance in various ways across the world.”

The fair’s customary charms will also be showcased, including heritage demonstrations, harvest-themed crafts, a vendor market featuring nearly two dozen local makers and organizations, and, monologues by the Re-enactors; Surrey’s heritage re-enactment performance troupe.
