COVID 19 Message *updated June 30

June 30, 2021

Dear Fairgoers, Sponsors, Vendors, Suppliers, Exhibitors & Volunteers,

As Ontario moves into Stage 2 of the Roadmap to Reopen, Stage 3 still includes “reduced capacity and other restrictions” for fairs and rural exhibitions. These restrictions are still undefined and do not allow for proper planning to host a fair in August 2021.

Navan Fair, in its traditional form, is cancelled for 2021. A few of our events will be going virtual and others are cancelled. At this time, the only in-person event will be a drive-thru parade. This event will take place on the fairgrounds August 14 from 10 am until noon.

The Cumberland Township Agricultural Society is exploring the possibility of hosting a few events later in the summer and early fall. Please keep monitoring our website and social media for plans and various projects that we are working on.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support over the past 74 years. We are truly grateful to all of you. We encourage you to support the local businesses who support us. We have counted on them in the past, they are now counting on us!

We now look forward to August 2022 when we can, hopefully, all be together again to celebrate our community and agricultural roots at our 75th fair. Let us know if you’d like to get involved by contacting the fair office (navanfair@bellnet.ca or 613-835-2766) or reaching out to a director. As always, we look forward to your comments and ideas.

Please continue to follow all of the health precautions to stop the spread of Covid-19. Take care of yourselves and your loved ones and get vaccinated when it’s your turn.

Thank you,

Luc Bergeron, President CTAS
on behalf of the CTAS Board of Directors. #supportlocal #FairsAreResilient #oaas #navanfair
