2020 FAIR POSTPONEMENT

 The social and economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic is touching everyone and the Tavistock Agricultural Society is no exception.  The Board of Directors of the Tavistock Agricultural Society announces the postponement of the 2020 fair, originally scheduled for September 11 – 13, 2020 until September 10-12, 2021.  Farm to Table will be the theme in 2021.  

This decision was not made lightly and we have consulted with trade organizations and government agencies.  Using all information currently available, the Board has unanimously decided that the safety of our community, visitors, members, volunteers and vendors is our primary concern.

As a Tavistock Fair family, we love bringing our community together to celebrate and promote agriculture.  With this in mind, our Board of Directors and volunteers will be working on different ways to continue to celebrate and educate about agriculture in our community.  Please follow our social media channels and our website, www.tavistockfallfair.com for online content in the coming months.

New Orleans Pizza, Tavistock is supporting the Tavistock Agricultural Society with a fundraiser on Thursday June 25. With the purchase of pizza (a minimum order $20 before tax) call 519-655-3336 the Society will receive $5.  This money will be used to cover the ongoing cost of such items as insurance etc.   

Over the past 168 years, the Tavistock Fair has overcome many challenges and this is no different.  We will get through this together and look forward to seeing everyone in 2021.

Sincerely,

Julie Kimpel

President
