Dear Friends


The New Brunswick Fairs and Exhibitions Association has announced that all

events scheduled for 2020 are suspended due to COVID-19.

Our fairs and exhibitions are an integral part of summer and fall in New Brunswick. The decision to cancel was difficult but essential to protect the health and safety of our exhibitors, our volunteers and the public. We all need to do our part in limiting the spread of the virus. We thank the many volunteers, exhibitors and fair goers that make these events a success and invite all to support the return of our fairs and exhibitions in 2021.
