2021 Spring Carnival Cancelled

It is with much regret that we announce there will not be a 2021 Drexel Community Spring Carnival. Due to lingering safety concerns regarding the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Board of Directors felt it was in the best interest to cancel this year's Spring Carnival. As we pride ourselves in providing family fun, great entertainment, and agricultural education, we also take the safety of our patrons, volunteers, fair personnel, vendors, and entertainers very seriously. The restrictions that would have to be enforced to ensure the safety of everyone, such as limiting the amount of people on the grounds and how many can stand in lines (for rides and concessions) at one time, it would be extremely difficult and merely impossible to provide a fair that would be safe and enjoyable for everyone. We are moving in the right direction, we just have to wait a bit longer to ensure a successful event rather than a tragic event.

On a positive note, while we regret having to make this difficult decision, we have begun our preparations for the 2021 Drexel Community Fair. With the additional preparation time, we expect to have one of the best years in our history.

We certainly hope everyone understands and continues to pray that we will soon move past this historic time and come out bigger and stronger than ever before.

On behalf of the Drexel Community Fair Board of Directors, we hope everyone has an enjoyable summer, stay safe and we will see you in the fall!! God Bless!!
