Vermilion, AB- June 17, 2021- Following Premier Kenney’s recent announcement detailing Alberta’s “open for summer” plan, we know that within our community, there was hope felt regarding our beloved annual fair. The membership of the Vermilion Agricultural Society has spent many hours taking an in-depth look at whether we could host the fair at a calibre that our community deserves and has celebrated since 1906.
After many discussions and explorations into what it would entail to have the 2021 fair, the Vermilion Agricultural Society has made the difficult decision that the Vermilion Fair will not take place this summer.
It takes hundreds of volunteers to deliver the fair to our community while bringing far goers from all around our province into the Town of Vermilion. At this time, the Vermilion Agricultural Society feels the comfort and safety of our community, volunteers, exhibitors, and would-be attendees is best served by celebrating within our community.
We still intend to hold the smaller events that we have previously announced. We encourage you to celebrate with us during our fireworks show on July 31 to commemorate our 115th anniversary.
We look forward to July 2022, when we hope to welcome you once again at the Annual Vermilion Fair.
