An online Buy BC-themed trivia challenge that explores local products made in the province with BC Fairs is taking British Columbians on a journey this summer

“The B.C. fairs and exhibitions season is a perfect opportunity to support local farms and the food they produce,” said Lana Popham, Minister of Agriculture and Food, in a news release. “The Buy BC Trivia Contest will help share fun facts about the amazing local products that are grown, raised, and produced in B.C., and celebrate our farmers, producers, and processors while highlighting the many Buy BC products consumers can enjoy that are from their own backyards.”

Buy BC Trivia Contest during the 2022 B.C. fair season is being launched by the Ministry of Agriculture and Food in partnership with the BC Association of Agricultural Fairs and Exhibitions to help increase awareness of the Buy BC brand and encourage people to purchase B.C food and beverage products.

British Columbians can participate in the contest to find digital scavenger items — agricultural facts related to a fair’s region — by visiting participating fairs’ websites and social media pages. The eligibility criteria to enter the contest require individuals to answer at least five trivia questions and submit the answers through the BC Fairs mobile app or by completing an entry form on the BC Fairs’ website.

For a bonus entry to the contest, participants are encouraged to take a photo of themselves in front of an agricultural exhibit at any one of B.C.’s agricultural fairs or submit a photo of themselves at a B.C. farmers’ market.

The Buy BC Trivia Contest runs from Aug. 1 to Sept. 5, 2022.

A total 48 fairs and exhibitions in communities around the province are promoting a wide range of agriculture, food, and beverage products by Buy BC.
