The Board of Directors of the Oley Valley Community Fair Association announced today its decision to postpone the 2020 Community Fair, which was scheduled for September 17, 18 & 19, 2020. This is the first time in its history that the Oley Valley Community Fair has been postponed.
In a statement released Wednesday, event officials say it has become clear that postponing this year’s Oley Valley Community Fair is the responsible choice for the health and wellness of the community.
“It is our responsibility to control the spread of COVID 19 and continue our effort to keep our community and beyond healthy and safe” stated Kevin D. Bieber, President of the Oley Valley Community Fair Association.
“The impact of the postponement of the 74th Annual Oley Valley Community Fair will be felt far and wide. The iconic three days in September that allow us to gather on the fairgrounds and share stories and just plain old catch up with others will be missed, all while enjoying your favorite fair foods. The impact will also be felt by the exhibitors, the small businesses and our sponsors” said event officials.
“The Board of Directors of the Oley Valley Community Fair, are very thankful to everyone who has supported the Oley Fair throughout the past years. We ask for your support through this troubling time that our world is going through and we ask for your respect in our very tough decision.”
Bieber added, “as difficult as this time is in our society, we know that the Oley Valley Community Fair will be back better than ever in 2021 as we celebrate the 74th Annual Community Fair on September 16, 17, 18, 2021.”
