August 17 - 21, 2021

After weeks of deliberation, the Tazewell County Fair Board of Directors has made the decision to cancel the 2020 Tazewell County Fair due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. This decision was made after considering every possible alternative. Noting the rise of cases locally, regionally, and nationally, the Board of Directors decided that it would not be possible to provide a week of events and entertainment, and simultaneously keep all fairgoers safe.


This year would mark the 148th anniversary of the Tazewell County Fair. The Fair was founded in 1872 and has been held consecutively at various sites throughout the county for almost two centuries. While there are older fairs in the Commonwealth, other fairs suspended operations during WWII and the Great Depression when Tazewell County did not.


The Board wishes their faithful attendees, supporters, and volunteers a safe and healthy year. We look forward to seeing everyone at the 2021 Tazewell County Fair.
