NBC Connecticut

The Durham Fair is returning this September.

Fair organizers made the announcement Monday in a video posted to Facebook.

The 101st Durham Fair will be held Sept. 23-26.

The fair did not happen in 2020 due to concerns over COVID-19

"We're excited about this decision," said Dan Miramant, president of the Durham Fair Association, in the Facebook video. "We promise in the great traditions of the Durham Fair, to offer your family and friends a good, clean, wholesome, friendly experience."

There will be some changes to this year's event, including the fair's famous massive pumpkins being moved to a new "Garden of the Giants."

Fair organizers have decided to not bring national headline acts to the main stage this year, saying the health and safety of fairgoers are their top priority.

The main stage performances will return in 2022, they said.
