The 2020 West Virginia State Fair Cancellation Is The First Since World War II

The State Fair of West Virginia has been a steady, popular presence in the lives of West Virginians for nearly a century. It’s something we look forward to every year! But, at least for 2020, it’s one of the many events canceled due to COVID-19. That’s almost unheard of, but not quite. In fact, the fair has been cancelled twice before…once for six consecutive seasons!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

Were you planning to attend the state fair this year, and if so, will you plan to attend next year instead? What about this year, will you make any replacement plans? Here’s one suggestion, if you do: Smoke Hole. It’s not the fair, but it is a ton of family-friendly fun!
