Royal Winter Fair 2020 cancelled

The Royal Winter Fair which was scheduled to run November 6-15 has been cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic precautions. As the fair was happening so late in the year they were probably hoping that they would be able to open the largest, indoor combined Royal Agricultural Winter Fair and Royal Horse Show. However without any vaccine and social distancing still on the table. It has only been cancelled once before during the second world war. The fair will look at virtual programming options for this fall.

“Over the past several months, we’ve all experienced an unprecedented disruption to our daily lives and are redefining how we live, work and play. Ultimately, our decision is grounded in our commitment to help ensure the health and well-being of our community at large,” stated Charlie Johnstone, Chief Executive Officer at The Royal. “Our primary responsibility remains rooted in serving our community and protecting the integrity and welfare of all. We understand and appreciate the time, effort and financial commitment required to compete and exhibit at The Royal and did not make this decision without very careful consideration.”

“During these uncertain times, we’re heartened by the resilience of farmers, the ingenuity of entrepreneurs, and the abundance of care shown towards family, friends and animals,” concluded Johnstone. “As we lead up to our 100th Anniversary celebrations in 2022, we take comfort knowing that the 2021 Royal Agricultural Winter Fair will be, as always, an outstanding experience for all those who compete, exhibit and attend.”
