The Board of Directors of the Oxford Fair hold the safety of our patrons, exhibitors, vendors, entertainers, and all others involved in our fair above all else. We have been working with the Maine Association of Agricultural Fairs and State Department of Agriculture on this issue for the last few months.
As we enter into the phases of re-opening our state, we will continue to monitor the situation and state regulations with a plan to meet again in the first part of August to make our final decision. If we are able to open this September, we acknowledge that the fair would need to have a completely different look.
Our commitment to 4H is part of our agricultural mission. Oxford Fair is working on a plan to help our 4H members auction their beef animals as would ordinarily take place during fair week regardless on whether we choose to have the fair or not.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we all navigate through this challenging time
