New Brunswick fairs and exhibitions suspended for 2020
April 24, 2020
FREDERICTON – The New Brunswick Fairs and Exhibitions Association has announced that all events scheduled for 2020 are suspended because of the situation surrounding COVID-19.
“Our fairs and exhibitions are an integral part of summer and fall here in New Brunswick,” said Mike Vokey, executive director of the association. “The decision to pause was difficult but essential to protect the health and safety of our producers, our volunteers and the public. All the fairs across the province agreed that we need to do our part in limiting the spread of this virus.”
Vokey explained that such gatherings are contrary to the social distancing and hygiene recommendations of New Brunswick’s chief medical officer of health.
Agriculture, Aquaculture and Fisheries Minister Ross Wetmore supported the decision.
“Fairs are a tradition for many New Brunswickers, a way to celebrate our farmers and bring communities together,” said Wetmore. “This is a prudent and responsible decision. Our government will continue to work with our fairs and exhibitions to promote our agricultural sector’s vitality.”
The New Brunswick Fairs and Exhibitions Association also thanked the many volunteers that typically make these events a success and invited them to offer their support again in 2021.
