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 Fall event will be Sept 9-11 2022 at the Salt Spring Island Fall Fair 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 Farmers Institute, Salt Spring Island . It will be hosted in and outdoors, with any required Health regulations in place.
- Our event will be open to attendees to visit (fee at entry), and be promoted across the region (Vancouver Island) as a community event.
- We will have onsite food, activities, vendors, live music and more to engage and entertain our attendees and visitors.
Our Show judge will be Clayton Botkin from Fraser Valley, BC and there will be prizes awarded for winning birds.
This is a THREE day event.
Coop in – Friday September 9, 330-730PM. NO VET CHECK required for Poultry.
