The Salt Spring Island Poultry Club was formed in 2009 and is a club for local breeders, backyard flock owners and pet owners of any type of poultry. Our members share, learn, promote, and encourage each other in a family-friendly and social atmosphere.
Over the past years our club has continued to grow, with over 400 Poultry enthusiasts in our group. We organize live and virtual educational events, as well as run two American Poultry Association events each year for our members and visitors to “compete” for Champion.
Our 2022 event will be SATURDAY May 28th at the FULDORD HALL ON SALTSPRING ISLAND and has been named the APA “Provincial Event” of the year (for British Columbia). We are expecting this will bring additional off-island entries, and a greater opportunity to share our Island with local and visiting Poultry Enthusiasts.
- Our show will be at the FULDORD HALL on Saturday May 28th . It will be hosted in and outdoors, with any required Health regulations in place.
- Our event will be open to attendees to visit, and be promoted across the region (Vancouver Island) as a community event.
- We will have onsite food, activities, local vendors and a prize raffle to engage and entertain our attendees and visitors.
Our Show judge will be EMMET WILD from Washington and there will be prizes awarded for winning birds.
This is a ONE day event. Birds will need to be cleared of the area at event close. No bird can be kept over night on location.
Salt Spring Island hosts a variety of cafes, restaurants and bakeries as well as various wineries and great hikes. If you require accommodations, please search VRBO or AirBnB for rentals, or check the local hotels and resorts.
