FORT ASHBY - The Mineral County Fair will not be taking place June 16-20, 2020 due to the gathering restrictions still in place by the state of West Virginia.


“We have waited as long as we possibly could to make this decision, hoping the restrictions would be lifted, as this is a major fundraiser for the Fort Ashby Volunteer Fire Company,” said a spokesperson for the fair board.


“Our hands are tied in this decision as are the hands of our ride company, Cole Amusement Company, who would have loved to come and provide their services, as this is hurting them as well.


“We are extremely disappointed that we cannot have the fair as scheduled and want to thank all of our patrons for their continued support. We will update as the situation changes and hope that our community and patrons understand that this decision is completely out of our hands as we can not jeopardize the fair in future years.”
