The Mannington District Fair Board of Directors voted Thursday, June 18, 2020 to cancel the 2020 Mannington District Fair due to the most recent outbreak of COVID-19 cases in the surrounding areas. The Mannington District Fair has only cancelled one other time and that was during World War II.
The initial decision to proceed with the fair this year was based on guidelines presented by local and state health officials. The situation has changed, and the board felt it was important to protect our community. We are saddened by this decision, but we know that it is the right decision.
The Board of Directors would like to thank our vendors, entertainers, volunteers, and employees that were willing to move forward this year. We appreciate everything you do to make the fair a success and we hope to see you next year.
The 88th Mannington District Fair is now scheduled for August 2-7, 2021.
