Rotary Club of Wiarton Announces Cancellation of 2020 Wiarton Rotary Village Fair

Media Release

It is with great sadness that the Rotary Club of Wiarton must announce the cancellation of the 2020 Wiarton Rotary Village Fair. The Wiarton Rotary Village Fair has been held on the August Civic Holiday weekend every year since its inception 83 years ago. This year, due to the Covid 19 Pandemic and our concerns for the health and wellbeing of our numerous guests, treasured volunteers and Wiarton Rotarians, the decision has been made to cancel our annual event.

The cancellation of the Village Fair and our earlier March fundraiser, Maple Magic, will undoubtedly impact the Wiarton Rotary Club’s ability to support all of the numerous beneficiaries that we help out every year.

We continue to plan for the “Shore to Shore Race” on the August long weekend, provided it can be held in a safe and responsible manner.

Please be assured that the Club is doing all it can to think of new ways in which it can raise funds while keeping participants and organizers safe. Please keep an eye on our website for any updates. However, should anyone be in a position to help out, donations may be made by clicking on the yellow “Donate” button on the website.

In the meantime, stay safe. We look forward to seeing everyone again in 2021 for Maple Magic in March and Village Fair in August.

Mike McMillan, President
