The Future of A World A’Fair

This time of year, we would normally be sharing all about A World A’Fair and how excited we are to attend.

Unfortunately, the event has been cancelled for the third year in a row. According to a statement on their website:
Unfortunately, due to the uncertainties surrounding Covid-19 and its variants plus uncertainties surrounding the Convention Center’s new ownership and management, the festival board has decided to cancel the May 2022 festival and study revamping the festival, pretty much from scratch. We have formed a committee to study what our options might be and as any decisions are made they’ll be presented here.

We hope to see the festival return in the future! Here are some pictures from past years.

A World A’Fair 2021 is Postponed

After the 2020 A World A’Fair was postponed, and then cancelled, we were so disappointed. Unfortunately, it seems like that may be the case again. Originally scheduled for Friday May 21st through Sunday May 23rd, the festival has once again been postponed, and will potentially be rescheduled for the fall.

Please enjoy some pictures from past years of A World A’Fair.

Also, in light of Monday’s storms that have deeply affected the area, our friends at Gem City Tonight are taping on location at Hannah’s Bar at 121 North Ludlow Street tonight starting at 5, and hosting a fundraiser for the Dayton Tornado Disaster Relief. Anything you can bring will help; toiletries, monetary donations, canned goods, etc.

45th Annual A World A’fair

To the lady who met Bethany’s mother at the base hospital yesterday: we would love to know who you are, and we thank you for your kind words!

Sara attended the annual A World A’Fair international festival on May 19th, and had a blast! This is one of our favorite events, and we look forward to it every year.
