Canfield Fair canceled due to virus

CANFIELD — As most other events this year, the 174th Canfield Fair has been canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Junior Fair still will continue Sept. 2-7.

The fair board announced the cancellation late Tuesday morning, with the board making the decision Monday night, George Roman, director of grandstand entertainment and concessions, said.

He explained a reason behind the call now rather than closer to the fair was because vendors needed a decision.

Junior Fair participants and their immediate family members can attend and participate in junior fair events over Labor Day weekend, according to a news release posted to the fair’s social media page.

A waiver will be required to be signed by members and their parents, and a wristband will be required to be worn throughout the fair.
