The South Windsor Jaycees Foundation has been monitoring the current situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. We have been and will continue to review updates to Governor Ned Lamont Executive Orders, recommendations from the CDC and discussions with local and state health agencies. The Jaycees spend the better part of the year planning to provide an awesome event for the public to enjoy, while supporting many small businesses and giving non-profits and organizations an opportunity to raise funds. With that being said we considering the safety of our patrons, volunteers, vendors and all other fair participants our highest priority. However, as Wapping Fair is not scheduled to open for almost 4 months (Thursday, September 10, 2020) we believe making a decision to not open at this time would be premature. The Wapping Fair is a long standing tradition in South Windsor and with the current situation changing day to day and phase one reopening taking place shortly we want to delay any decision to see the impact these changes have on the restrictions and guidelines in place. A firm deadline for making a decision has not been decided, but we will keep everyone informed through this page and our website Thank you for your continued support of the South Windsor Jaycees Foundation’s Wapping Fair!

goat judgingThe Wapping Fair has been showcasing the region's livestock for over 120 years, and this year is no exception.  You may visit them in their stables and pens from Friday night until the fair closes on Sunday.  During the weekend, they will be judged for Showmanship and Breed.  See the schedule below for the show times and watch as their proud owners present them to the judges.  Click Here if you are interested in entering the competition.

Showmanship:  Entrant will be judged on their ability to both control and present their animal, and how they and their animal work together as a team.

Breed:  Through livestock associations, there are attempts to describe the ideal animal of a breed. Breed standards are the result of these attempts. They are guidelines for breeders to ensure that the animals they produce conform to the defined characteristics of the breed.  Here the animals will be judged against these guidelines.
