    An undampened EagleFest 2019!

    Despite rain and high winds, EagleFest 2019 delivered all the fun of the fair - indoors! The famous EagleFest basket raffle attracted much interest in John Schaffter Hall, and fairgoers enjoyed the traditional EagleFest BBQ in Hamber Hall while watching the Teakle Family Circus perform! The bouncers, photo booth and canteen were housed in Dutton Memorial Arena, the Reimer Gymnasium and the Richardson Senior School, while the slime lab, face painting station, and the escape rooms were hosted in the Junior School.
