Welcome to the 128th Wapping Fair


September 10-13, 2020

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 consider 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 facebook page. Thank you for your continued support of the South Windsor Jaycees Foundation’s Wapping Fair!
