Another event has been cancelled due to an uptick in COVID-19 cases in Quesnel.

The Quesnel Fall Fair announced they were cancelling the event for the year through a Facebook post by the Quesnel Agriculture and Exhibition Association on Monday, Sept. 13.

“This was not an easy decision to make, however due to the current situation surrounding COVID-19, the planning committee thought it best to not take any unnecessary risks with the safety of our community,” the post reads.

“We understand and feel the disappointment this brings to all the vendors, participants and attendees of the 2021 Fall Fair.”
