Bloomsburg Fair canceled

The Bloomsburg Fair board announced the decision Tuesday to cancel the 2020 Bloomsburg Fair.

“This was a very difficult decision, but our concern for the health and safety of our community outweighs our desire to host this years fair,” the fair’s organizer’s said in a social media post. “The Bloomsburg Fair Association is committed to the overall well being of the entire region, and we do not wish to put anyone in jeopardy in order to open our gates. We will, instead, take this time to make improvements, train staff, and look to the future.”

Fair organizers said on Facebook that they already are busy with plans for the 2021 Bloomsburg Fair.

“Many entertainers have already agreed to perform on our Grandstand stage in 2021, new and impressive free entertainment is planned, many innovative surprises will delight families, and, of course, all of our traditional food, livestock, and educational opportunities will be available for all to experience at our 2021 Bloomsburg Fair,” organizers said.

The 2021 fair is scheduled from Sept. 24 to Oct. 2, 2021.
