Well... this stinks! Jersey Shore residents have been lucky to read about many reopenings happening this summer but this is the opposite. Unfortunately, the 2021 Ocean County Fair in Berkeley Township will be canceled. The fair was scheduled to happen July 14th through the 18th at Robert J. Miller Air Park.

From The Ocean County Fair Facebook Page:

Sadly once again we must cancel the OceanCountyFair.com. Covid restriction placed on us by the state and 4H being limited from having large gatherings make it impossible for us to safely host our 2021 County Fair. No one is more disappointed than the 100's of 4H kids, leaders and agents, dozens of Board of Agriculture volunteers and County staff and managers. Planning for July 13-17th, 2022 has already begun. Be safe and be well.

It's clear the Ocean County Fair was gearing up for a fantastic July week, especially after the cancellation of last year's fair. To be honest, like many of you, I am surprised the fair is canceled. It's an outdoor summer event and many people have been getting vaccinated. However, I don't make the rules and the best thing we can do right now is to continue to support those who make the fair great. They will be back in 2022!
