To Abbotsford Agrifair’s Valued Stakeholders—
During these times of challenges and changes, Agrifair’s Board and staff wish to reassure you that plans for our 2020 fair are still underway. While respecting the municipal, provincial, and federal directives for the health and safety of our community regarding gathering, it is our goal to be ready to give you, our stakeholders, the Best Little Country Fair on Earth this summer, should the ban be lifted.
Since 1911, there have been only two occasions on which the Abbotsford Agrifair was not able to open; even in the absence of a full fair, the 4-H organizations still had displays and competitions. Fairs are heritage organizations and a community staple, and together we are stronger.
It is Agrifair’s goal, should events be allowed to proceed this summer, to give the community an event supporting local talent. We will showcase local entertainers, artisans and crafters. We anticipate Agrifair will be the hub to re-establish and support all things local. This is a call-out for all; please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your interest in being part of this celebration.
Abbotsford Agrifair respectfully requests that our sponsors trust us to be good stewards of their sponsorship dollars and assure you that funding goes directly to the event.
Agrifair needs your support. We believe that, come summer should gatherings be embraced again, people will want to get out and enjoy themselves, spend time with their families, and support local business. Agrifair will be the place to do that.
Please feel free to email email@example.com with any questions you may have and continue to watch our website and Social Media for updates. In the meantime, let’s all remain healthy and optimistic for a bright summer full of fun activities!
Bob Street, President Abbotsford Agrifair
