Press Release: June 9, 2020 - Appalachian Fair, Gray, TN:
It is with great sadness and regret that the Board of Directors of the Appalachian Fair, under the guidance and recommendations of the Northeast TN Regional Health Department, the TN Department of Agriculture, and adhering to the CDC Guidelines, has decided the 2020 fair, scheduled for August 24-29, will not take place as planned.

While we will miss seeing everyone in August, the Board feels this is the responsible decision in the interest of public health. This difficult decision was based on many conversations with the state and local health leaders. With the restrictions caused by COVID-19, the Board does not feel we could create the same safe and enjoyable fair experience the region has grown to expect.

"The impact of the fair's cancellation will be felt far beyond the loss of our annual celebration," stated Phil Booher, Fair Manager.

"The effect this will have on all businesses, families, farms, adult and youth competitors, exhibitors, and sponsors will be felt in the community for several years," Booher added.

The Appalachian Fair is not going away. The fair has been a family tradition in the region since 1926, and we will be back. We are already working on plans to make our 2021 Fair, August 23rd-28th, even better.
