Fair Canceled Again

Wayne Howard

Add to the list of cancellatioins due to the current surge of the delta variant of the coronavirus the Cleveland County Fair.  Just like last year, the fair has been canceled for 2021.  

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in the postponement of multiple other events including the WNC Bigfoot Festival in Marion. The festival, canceled last year due to the COVID pandemic, was scheduled for Friday & Saturday September 17th and 18th. It will now be held in May of next year.

Salisbury has canceled its Cheerwine Festival originally scheduled for Saturday September 18th.

Hickory also canceled its Oktoberfest again this year; and the Blumenthal Performing Arts and Charlotte Center City Partners postponed the Charlotte SHOUT! festival, previously scheduled to take place in Uptown Charlotte September 17th­­–October 3rd until a future date in 2022.

Still happening is the 27th annual North Carolina Mountain State Fair which kicks off Friday at the WNC Ag Center in Fletcher.

Thursday morning, Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler, Labor Commissioner Josh Dobson, and others held a press conference to outline safety procedures.  While they aren't required, wearing masks was suggested, and fair-goers won't have to prove they've been vaccinated, although that is certainly recommended.  The Mtn. State Fair runs through Sept. 19th.

The Lincoln County Apple Festival is also still a go--and will be unless a state edict says otherwise.  It's scheduled for Saturday October 16th.  The NC Apple Festival at Hendersonville was held this past weekend.
