After much discussion and consideration, the Piscataquis Valley Fair Association has decided to postpone this year’s fair set for August 27th thru 30th due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our first priority is the health and safety of our community and volunteers as well as the thousands of visitors who come to our fairgrounds each year. We have been conversing with our insurance company, vendors, state officials, the Department of Agriculture and many others about our fair. It would be near impossible to follow the Maine CDC guidelines for social distancing and PPE considerations in order to ensure everyone’s safety.

We understand that the Piscataquis Valley Fair plays a role in our community and the economic impact our event has on many businesses in the area that’s why this decision did not come easy.

Our plan is to continue improvements on the grounds in 2020 and we look forward to seeing everyone in 2021 when the fair dates will be August 26th thru 29th.

We wish to express our appreciation to all of those that have supported our little fair. It is because of all the fairgoers, campers, volunteers, vendors, exhibitors, and participants that Piscataquis Valley Fair has been such a success for all these years.

For continued updates on the Piscataquis Valley Fair please follow us on our Facebook page and website piscataquisvalleyfair.com as we will be watching the restrictions and guidelines to see if there is an oppurtunity to be able to do something in the fall on the grounds.

Thank you again.
