FAIR
CLARKE COUNTY
- TO THE 66TH ANNUAL -
Slider

The Ruritan and the Clarke County Fair Boards recently met and made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Clarke County Fair.

This decision was not made lightly as we are part of this community and love the fair and are heartbroken by this decision.

However, we had to make the decision based on the State of Virginia and CDC guidelines that are in place now, not what we hope for in August.

NOTE: The Livestock Committee is planning to hold livestock shows and sale during the week of Aug. 9 for all registered Clarke County livestock exhibitors. More details to come. #InThisTogether #ClarkeCountyVirginia

We look forward to seeing you all at the 2021 Fair!
