A Labour Day weekend tradition in Essex County is returning this year.

After being cancelled the past two years due to CIVID-19, the 166th Harrow Fair will take place September 1st to 4th.

“The economic impact of delaying this presentation for two years has been felt by many charitable groups, vendors, entertainers, and local businesses that rely on the Harrow Fair, some as their main/major source of revenue,” said Fair President Ed Gibbs.

“There are those who began the journey through COVID that did not survive and therefore will not enjoy another Fair, come to the Fair in their memory. There are those amongst us who did make it through but are not as young as they were or not in the same shape as when it began, thus requiring some difficult life changes.”

To ensure success, they are looking for new volunteers to fill these gaps. To volunteer, you can contact them by email at [email protected]

“We are preparing this presentation assuming no restrictions or mandates; however, we will be employing lessons learned throughout the pandemic on how to minimize disease transmission. We are working to improve airflow in all our exhibit areas and will increase the availability of sanitation centres,” Gibbs said.
