Operating as usual

Press release:

The Amelia County Fair is currently scheduled for August 17-22, 2020. These dates were chosen to allow the midway (ride) provider, Rosedale Attractions, to cover two fairs in two weeks, ours and the much larger Chesterfield County Fair. Since the COVID-19 pandemic closed down much of our country, we have had major concerns about both the safety of our visitors and uncertainty as to whether the state government would permit us to operate in a way that we could provide the fair experience our visitors expect and our finances require. Ours is a fairly low budget fair dependent upon volunteers, many of whom fall into high risk categories for COVID-19 complications, and we lack the ability to make the last minute adjustments that would be needed for a safe, fun event in these challenging times. Last week, the Chesterfield County Fair was cancelled for this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, placing our midway provider’s availability in question. Rather than put our visitors and volunteers at risk or affect our financial ability to put on a 2021 Fair, by unanimous vote the Fair Association has decided to cancel the 2020 Fair. We wish we could have offered our visitors the event so many have enjoyed and particularly need in these challenging times, but we hope you’ll all join us in making the 2021 Fair the best yet. Thank you for all your support.
