“…the Western Fair District has announced the cancellation of its three upcoming shows in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Speed and Custom Show, National Poultry Show and Home and Outdoor Show… will not happen as scheduled. Event staff are exploring opportunities to reschedule these shows in the future when it is appropriate. The decision to cancel this year’s Poultry Show was made in consultation with the Poultry Industry Council and was based on today’s recommendation of the Ontario Chief Medical Officer of Health, regarding the immediate suspension of all large events and public gatherings of over 250 people.” For more info visit the event web page.
