State Fair Flower Show Cancelled for 2020 – Look for Us in 2021
The CAGC recently learned from Dan Mourning, the General Manager of the New Mexico State Fair, the 2020 State Fair has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Mr. Mourning said, “While we are heartbroken that there will be no New Mexico State Fair in 2020, we remain committed to the safety and well-being of our staff, vendors, and our community above all else.”
We agree. And we agree with the words he spoke in the video on the State Fair website: “Like so many families find themselves doing now, we lean on each other in times of hardship and we’ll come out stronger on the other side.” We add our wish to his – we cannot wait to see you at the State Fair in 2021! While the State Fair is bigger than the Flower Shows, that is the piece that is nearest and dearest to our gardening hearts. We hope that you’ll spend your time in your gardens, enjoying the beauty of New Mexico in your yard.
