The Listowel Agricultural Society Presents the
165th Listowel Fair
April 21, 2021 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Over the past 14 months we have endured challenging and difficult times within our community. We have had to learn how to adapt to ever-changing conditions and to not take anything for granted including being able to come together for community gatherings such as the Listowel Fair.
The Board of Directors of the Listowel Agricultural Society have made the decision that the 165th Listowel Agricultural Fair will go forward this year but will be presented in a modified format. This year’s edition of the fair will take place in the first two weeks of July.
Plans are being explored for drive-in and drive-thru events such as drive-in fireworks, a drive-thru meal and an Explore Your Community Scavenger Hunt/Car Rally. Ultimately, these events will be dependent on Covid-19 restrictions in July. Plans for a Seed Growing Competition with sunflower and pumpkin seeds are underway with seed packages available soon. Virtual competitions are also being planned with details for all Listowel Fair activities to be released soon.
During this time of uncertainty and because of the rapid changes that Covid-19 presents, the fairboard did not take this decision lightly. The protection and safety of our members, volunteers and the community were of the utmost importance in making this decision. We are grateful for the support the community has shown to our organization during Covid. We look forward to seeing everyone at the 2021 Listowel Agricultural Fair, whether at a drive-in or drive-thru event or virtually. We thank everyone for their support and understanding.
Watch our social media pages and our website ( www.listowelfair.com ) for exciting event and competition announcements. The Listowel Ag Society can also be reached at 519-291-0644 or at email@example.com We wish all of you good health and strength in the days ahead.
Thank you, 2021 Board of Directors Listowel Agricultural Society (Listowel Agricultural Fair)
