The annual War Eagle Fair set for October has been canceled because of covid-19, according to a statement from the fair.
The 67th annual fair has been pushed to Oct. 14-17, 2021. The event takes place along the banks of the War Eagle River in Benton County, according to its website.
"Founded in 1954, the War Eagle Fair began as a way for Ozark artisans to display and market their wares. Each year, thousands of visitors descend on the War Eagle Valley to take in the sites and sounds offered by over 200 artisans. With the continued rise in covid-19 cases in the Northwest Arkansas area and the uncertainty that our society continues to face, it would be irresponsible on many levels to continue on with event as planned," according to the statement.
The War Eagle Fair will feature registered vendors on its Facebook page and Instagram account to support them, according to the statement.
