44th Annual Fairhaven Homecoming Day Fair Postponed Until 2021
The 44th Annual Fairhaven Homecoming Day Fair scheduled for Saturday, June 27, 2020 has been rescheduled for Saturday, June 26, 2021.
Because of continuing concerns about the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19), we plan to postpone the fair till next year’s Homecoming Weekend, says Barbara Acksen, chair of the Homecoming Day Fair Committee for the Fairhaven Improvement Association, which sponsors the fair. The well-being of the general public, vendors and town employees is our number one priority. We have decided that rescheduling the fair is the only responsible course of action at this time.”
She adds, “We made this decision because there is currently no clear time when the virus will be under control and safe for large-scale events.”
For many years the Homecoming Day Fair has been Fairhaven’s most popular annual event. In 2019 the fair included more than 175 booths featuring artists and craftsmen from all over New England, food, kids’ games, fire engine rides, music and live entertainment for the entire family.
“We want to thank all the vendors, artists, Town of Fairhaven employees, and other members of the community for their ongoing support,” Acksen says. “Our team will be reaching out directly to vendors and other participants with information about providing full refunds for any fees they have paid.”
Acksen concludes, “We’re resolved to take up in 2021 where we left off with the Fairhaven Homecoming Day Fair. We’re excited to reaffirm the community connections the event has encouraged in its various forms going back over 100 years.”
