Come say hello to the Ravens at the Saanich Fair this Labour Day Weekend


The Saanich Fair is western Canada's oldest agriculture fair (150 years young this year) and draws tens of thousands of people over the Labour Day weekend. People come to enjoy the live music, dance performances, eating contests, raffle draw, baking, needlecraft, livestock, showing horses, growing vegetables. What doesn't this fabulous fair have to offer for just about everybody!  This year the focus of the the fair is a "Family A Fair" and promises to be a fun time for all - young and young at heart! 

In a way Ravens Crossing Cohousing is a reflection of the theme for this year's Saanich Fair. We are  a family affair as well. We are building a multi-generational community who value privacy and connection with a simpler, healthier and more energy-efficient environment. We are a diverse group of independent households designing our 26,000 sq.ft. planned neighborhood within a 5-minute walk of the ample amenities Sidney offers, a 10-minute stroll to the ocean, close to transit and green spaces, and a skip and a jump from Sidney Elementary School. 

So...come to the Fair...and while you are there take some time to stop by the Ravens Crossing Cohousing Booth - Number 28. There will be activities for the kids, a contest and you can meet us, find out more about cohousing and discover what an attractive proposition cohousing in Sidney can be for people at all ages and stages of life.

We look forward to saying hello! And if you miss us at the Fair, we have an information session on Saturday 8 September from 4:30 to 6:00pm at the McTavish Academy of Art, 1720 McTavish Road, North Saanich. See our Events page for more details.
