The Editor:

After careful consideration of all the safety concerns and uncertainties around the outcome of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is with heavy hearts that the Chesterville and District Agricultural Society (CDAS) has decided to cancel this year’s Chesterville Fair.

Although this would have been our 89th annual event, CDAS board members unanimously felt that this was the right decision. Our highest priority is to keep our community, vendors, volunteers and board members safe as we navigate through this ‘new normal’.

Our sponsors are the backbone of this event and we thank you all from the bottom of our hearts. We hope you can all understand how difficult this decision was to make and that we did it for everyone’s safety.

We wish you all the best through this difficult time and hope to see you next year as we celebrate Chesterville Fair’s 90th anniversary. 

Stay safe! Stay Well! Stay Healthy!

Sincerely,

CDAS 2020 Board of Directors
