Wirt County Fair on hold until 2021

ELIZABETH — The Wirt County Fair Association has postponed the 61st annual fair to 2021.

According to its Facebook post, guidelines were unclear on how to proceed with the regularly scheduled fair.

“We have debated, worried, and fretted this decision while watching the guidelines that have been issued by the CDC, Health Department, and governor,” the post said. “We feel the safety of staff, vendors, 4-H, FFA, parents, and visitors takes precedence over all else.”

The 61st fair will be held Aug. 4-7, 2021. The fair association will continue to update its Facebook page and website at wirtcountyfair.com.
