The Alexandria Fair Board announced via its Facebook page on Thursday afternoon that the 2020 fair has been cancelled.
"After many meetings and careful consideration we have determined that this is the best option for the safety of our patrons, exhibitors, and volunteers. Safety, as always is our number one priority," the post stated. "We exhausted every possible scenario to meet the health department guidelines and still deliver a quality event but we could not make the two ends meet."
Last week, the Fair Board cancelled two events...but had not yet made a decision on the fair itself.
The post also said that the board will continue to have meetings in regards to the Fall Demo Derby and Vintage Flair events. Updates will be posted as soon as they are available.
