166th Harrow Fair
Postponed to Labour Day Weekend, 2022
April 26, 2021
Faced with a third wave resulting in current case counts exceeding numbers of a year ago it is with continued sadness the Board of Directors of Colchester South and Harrow Agricultural Society announce that the 166th presentation of the Harrow Fair will now be deferred until Labour Day weekend, 2022 and not in 2021 as announced last year.
We believe that adherence to public health measures and getting vaccinated will lead to the end of the pandemic but there is insufficient evidence that progress will be achieved to safely conduct the 166th presentation of the Harrow Fair in September 2021 as hoped at this time last year. It is fiscally irresponsible to plan a major Fair that could be subject to restrictions affecting attendance and overall presentation. The Board of Directors want to keep the spirit of the Fair alive and are making plans to hold the Harrow Fair Parade on September 4, 2021 should restrictions allow. We are interested in other ways of maintaining our spirit and ask you to submit ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org. Watch our website www.harrowfair.com and follow us on Facebook for updates.
The economic impact of this pandemic continues to be felt by many charitable groups, vendors, entertainers, and local businesses that have relied on the Harrow Fair, some as their major source of revenue, so please keep them in mind when making purchase decisions. We wish to thank all our advertisers, volunteers and supporters who have stood by us during these unprecedented times.
In closing, please continue to adhere to public health measures, get vaccinated, submit your ideas, watch for updates and start making plans now to attend the Parade on September 4th, 2021 as well as the 166th presentation of the Harrow Fair on Labour Day Weekend 2022, starting on the Thursday. Stay safe, be well and see you at the Parade September 4, 2021!
Ed Gibbs, President
