More Than A Century Of World-Class Experiences

Claresholm has produced more than a century of world-class people and experiences. This rich heritage stems from agricultural roots that continue to shape the Town today. Claresholm has played a role in supporting the war effort of both World Wars and other conflicts, championing human rights, and much more. To learn more about the people and events that have shaped our community, visit the Claresholm & District Museum or the Claresholm Public Library.

Claresholm Fair Days

Claresholm Fair Days takes place the second weekend in August every summer. Fair Days celebrates what small town living truly means with a parade and much more! We hope you will stop by for a visit!

Claresholm Fair Days 2021 is August 13 - 15.

Theme for 2021: "Wings Over Claresholm" as we join the Claresholm & District Museum to commemorate the importance of the wartime flight school.

2021 Bench Show 


Due to a lack of preparation time and shortage of volunteers, the 2021 Claresholm & District Fair Days Bench Show is cancelled. 

Thank you for your involvement over the years.  Without the participation of so many volunteers the Claresholm & District Fair Days Bench Show would have been extinct before now........It has not reached the point of extinction....just a hiatus!
Your comments regarding this decision and future plans for the Bench Show are appreciated.
Stay safe and healthy,
Claresholm & District Bench Show Board
