2020 Solanco Fair is Cancelled

The Solanco Fair Board announces the cancellation of the Solanco Community Fair, and all related activities September 16-18, 2020, due to COVID-19 social restrictions. This includes the Community Parade, which is held on Wednesday evening, September 16th.

The residents of the Solanco community have made this agricultural event a successful and progressive southern end tradition for the past seventy-one years. It is part of the heritage of Southern Lancaster County. It is with great sadness and disappointment that this decision was made. It was not an easy conclusion to reach. However, because of our great respect and appreciation for the residents of this area and the unwavering support that we have always enjoyed not only during fair week but throughout the year, we feel it is not only our top priority, but our responsibility to place the health and safety of each member of this community above all else. It is our hope that the cancellation of this large gathering of people, which has been mandated by the state, will help to slow, or stop the spread of COVID-19 in Southern Lancaster County. It is our hope and prayer that our community can come together during these challenging times and join forces to make the 2021 Solanco Fair the best ever!

Plans are being made to hold the Livestock Shows and auction as scheduled, following all CDC guidelines and PA mandates. Information regarding this will be available on the Solanco Fair Facebook page and local newspapers. Questions can be directed to President, Rob Lowery or General Manager, Scott Peiffer.
