One of our favorite events of the summer is the annual Abbotsford Agrifair, which is a fantastic family friendly attraction and definitely a highlight of the season! This year marks the 101st anniversary of the fair and takes place July 28, 2011 to August 1, 2011 at the Abbotsford Exhibition Park. Our family friendly hotel is only a quick 17-minute drive from the fairgrounds, so you can be close to all the action and still enjoy the beauty of Aldergrove, BC.
Expect five days of amazing family fun including animal shows, a professional rodeo, KidZone area, tradeshow, main stage entertainment and midway rides. This year’s fair also features ¿Qué Bolá? Magic, an exciting spectacle of comedic magic, and a breathtaking Spring Up Trampoline Wall Show. Of course, this IS a fair, so expect there to be lots of delicious treats, like cotton candy and corn dogs, to complete this one-of-a-kind experience.

If you’re staying at the Best Western Country Meadows in the beautiful Aldergrove area, we highly recommend that you get tickets to the most electrifying show of the year. The legendary rock band, KISS, will be playing for one night only on June 27th, 2011. This not to be missed concert will be at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre (AESC), which is only a quick 17 minute drive from our affordable and comfortable hotel.
Formed in New York City in 1972, KISS has become one of the most influential bands in the history of rock and roll. The KISS quartet includes original members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley, and Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer, who have been a part of the band since 1991 and 2002, respectively. KISS is responsible for classic rock anthems such as “Rock and Roll All Nite”, “Detroit Rock City” and “Shout it Out Loud.”
This will be KISS’ first ever performance in Abbotsford or the Fraser Valley, so reserve your tickets fast through the AESC website or call 1-866-977-AESC (2372). Ticket prices range from $70.25 to $150.25. Also, if you’re from Vancouver, why not book a stay at our Best Western hotel so you can rock and roll all night long without having to drive home after the show? Contact our friendly staff to check our room availability.

As much as we love the big screen experience, an overcrowded movie theatre and sticky soda pop floors can get pretty tiresome. Thankfully, located only minutes away from our Aldergrove, B.C. hotel is the amazing Twilight Drive-In Theatre. It is the only drive-in theatre in British Columbia and it comes with all the nostalgic fixings that makes this kind of experience truly one of a kind.
Simply park your car in front of the 40 foot screen and flip your radio on to the drive-ins very own FM Station. That’s right, all the audio gets streamed right into your car! What’s even better is that the Twilight plays all the latest movies. Actually, what’s even better is that you get to watch TWO brand new films for the price of one. The Twilight has two showings and you’re more than welcome to stay and watch both movies. To complete this family-friendly experience, be sure to grab a classic cheeseburger, onion rings, bucket of popcorn and of course, your favorite candies for the show.
When the weather’s nice, we suggest taking a 15 minute walk from our Aldergrove, B.C. hotel to the theatre and laying out a picnic on the grass for a movie under the stars. When your show is over, come back to Best Western Country Meadows where you can spend the night going over your favorite scenes and planning your next trip to the Twilight. The theatre is open, rain or shine, from February to November.
