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!

We have gobs of things to do. Check out some of them below.

Construction Zone

Hey kids!  Put on a hard hat, grab a hammer and take a seat on the machinery while your parents get some great photos of you.  Just remember to leave the props for the next set of construction workers!  Thank you to our sponsor:  Bobcat of CT

What is better than one sandbox?  How about two sandboxes!  But our boxes are not filled with sand…  Down here on the farm, we fill them with CORN kernels!!  Lots of fun play time for our youngest fairgoers.

1,600 sq feet fun maze!  Keep going up and down the rows until you find your way out and onto another adventure.  It’s truly A-maze-ing! 

Thank you to our sponsor:  Berkshire Bank

Howdy, partner!  Toddlers can enjoy 500 square feet of rocking horse fun!  Hats and apparel provided, so plenty of great picture opportunities – just remember to leave the props for the next set of cowboys and cowgirls!  Sponsored by Attorney Marianne Lassman Fisher
