SALISBURY, Md. – Wicomico County Fair organizers have announced that this year’s event has been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

We’re told the decision to cancel was made after careful consideration by the Wicomico Farm & Home Show and Wicomico County, in coordination with the Wicomico County Health Department and Department of Emergency Services.

“Canceling the event was not a decision we made lightly,” said James Simmons, Wicomico County recreation superintendent. “We know the Fair is a beloved tradition, but we had to prioritize the health and safety of fair attendees and participants.”

Fair organizers say they will now shift their focus to the 2021 event, which is scheduled for August 20th through 22nd, at Winterplace Park.
