The WSFA shares in the pain and apprehension that is being felt in our communities and the Fair Industry. Words like unprecedented have been followed by words you hate to hear…postponed, closed and cancelled.
We truly are in this together, however, differences in demographics across the State will affect how a “return to normal” will be implemented. The WSFA asks that each Fair seek guidance from the State of Washington and your local health authorities.
Listed below are a number of resources for information and assistance.
