Ancaster Fair 2020 to be Re-Imagined
The 170th Ancaster Fair scheduled for the 3rd weekend after Labour Day, September 24-27, 2020, will not take place due to COVID-19. A re-imagined event is currently being planned with details to follow in the coming weeks.
The Ancaster Agricultural Society (AAS) Board of Directors made the difficult but prudent decision on Monday, June 8 after surveying their membership and reviewing the state of the Province in the wake of COVID-19.
We are grateful for the confidence and support our sponsors and vendors continue to provide. This will allow us to move forward with our vision to stay present throughout 2020.
This is only the second Ancaster Fair that has been cancelled in our 170 year history. The decision, impact, and ripple effect will be great. The Fair was cancelled in 1937 due to Infantile Flu, polio. The decision to not host the 170th Fair in 2020 is not the end of our year. In the coming weeks we will be putting together an interactive schedule of educational videos and competitions. We encourage our loyal and valued supporters to follow us on our social media platforms for updates. We are certain you’ll find something for the whole family.
