As you have most likely heard by now, the Board of Trustees of the Fryeburg Fair has voted to postpone this year's event due to the Covid19 Pandemic.
For those of you who have contracted with us for space, we will be refunding your payment and deposit within the next few weeks. Many of your checks have been held until this very difficult decision was made and if that is the case, we will simply return your check. For those of you whose check has been deposited, we will be issuing a refund check for the full amount of payment received to date.
We understand the economic hardships that many of you may face due to the loss of revenue from our event and others and we sympathise with you. However, the risks outweigh the reward and the health of our visitors, employees and volunteers as well as our community and yourselves must come first. For this reason and many more, we just can not justify putting lives at risk and we felt it prudent to give as much notice to our vending partners as possible.
We will continue to look at other ways in which we can support you and our agricultural partners, please continue to monitor our website, Facebook page and please reach out with any questions.
Thank you for the many positive remarks and posts, we appreciate your business and support.
The Midway Team
With a Smile,
Craft, Specialty Food and Expo Superintendent
