Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 West Niagara Fair has been cancelled this fall.
In a Special Notice posted May 11, the Board of Directors for the West Niagara Agricultural Society, said: “With heavy hearts, the West Niagara Agricultural Society announces today that due to the Covid-19 pandemic situation, we have cancelled the annual WEST NIAGARA FAIR scheduled to take place September 11-13, 2020 at our Fairgrounds. We understand and respect the restrictions placed on public gatherings. To us what always comes first is the safety and well being of our community, our volunteers, our sponsors, our vendors, and our exhibitors.
The fair is expected to resume September 10 to 12, 2021. The theme for the fair is “Fall Leaves and Honey Bees”.
“We understand and respect the restrictions placed on public gatherings. To us what always comes first is the safety and well being of our community, our volunteers, our sponsors, our vendors and our exhibitors.”
West Niagara Fair was formed after merging the Smithville Fair and the Lincoln County Fair in 2014. The two predecessor agricultural events have more than 300 years of history between them.
Traditionally the fair has been held on the second weekend after Labour Day each fall.
