Due to the current restrictions and limitations surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic and the uncertainty regarding timelines that will allow us to join again safely in large groups, the Board of the New River Fair Association regrettably decided to cancel our annual fair scheduled for July 20-25, 2020.

The decision to cancel came after much consideration and included input from many of our sponsors, entertainers and vendors.  We also considered the safety of our community and the future success of the New River Valley Fair.  The decision of the Board was unanimous.

We are in the process of contacting our sponsors, entertainers, vendors and community groups that are impacted to ensure all parties are aware of the change.

We appreciate the continued support of the New River Valley community and look forward to the return of the Fair in 2021.
