General note

Brandon's Winter Fair Building was built in 1907 and opened in 1908. It was located on Victoria Avenue between 10th Street and 11th Street. The Winter Fair and other community and agricultural events, such as the 10th Street Market Place, were held at this location. The building also served as a temporary home for patients of the Brandon Asylum after its fire in 1910. During the First World War, the building was used as an internment camp for over 700 "enemy aliens." In 1919, a fire that began in the RCMP horse barns almost completely destroyed the building. In its location today stands the Brandon Police Services station.
