2020 Fair Cancelled
Due to the many complications and uncertainties surrounding the 2020 Coronavirus pandemic, the Amherst County Agricultural Committee has reluctantly decided to cancel this year's Fair.
We hope that conditions will be more favorable for an event sometime in 2021. Please watch this site for future developments.
Thanks for your interest in the Amherst County Fair!
