2020 Hanover Fair Cancelled

It is with regret that the Hanover, Bentinck & Brant Agricultural Society announces the cancellation of the 2020 Hanover Fair (August 7, 8, 9) due to COVID-19. Our concern for the well-being of fair participants and volunteers lead us to this decision.

This was a very difficult choice to make, but at this time of uncertainty, we appreciate your understanding and support. The annual fair is a culmination of countless hours of planning by our team of dedicated volunteers, and we have been closely watching the status of the State of Emergency in Ontario.  At this time is in the best interest of our organization to cancel our 2020 Fair as you know it.

However, we are excited to announce that we will begin planning immediately for a “Virtual Fair”. This is a new venture for our organization and we are excited about the possibilities. We will continue to work hard to provide family fun and agricultural awareness through this new platform.

The Hanover, Bentinck & Brant Agricultural Society has been proudly supporting our community since 1864, and we look forward to renewing our traditions with a full slate of competitions, displays, entertainment, and free family fun at our 2021 Fair!

In the meantime, watch for upcoming details about how to engage in our “2020 Virtual Fair”. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter, and visit our website (hanoverfair.ca) for future announcements.
