The Culpeper Air Fest Committee today announced that it has decided to cancel this year’s Culpeper Air Fest, which was slated for October.

Steve Nixon, chairman of the committee, said in a news release, “Due to the pandemic, the committee could not in good conscience pursue funding like we have in the past with so many local businesses being affected by closures or operating at reduced capacity. We are also very concerned about a possible reoccurrence of Covid-19 in the fall. Without a vaccine currently available, we would not want to put anyone at risk at the largest annual gathering in Culpeper.

“We know that this is disappointing news to all of our fans, supporters, and to our community, but we will come back next year with a renewed enthusiasm to put on another fantastic air show for Culpeper and the surrounding area. To everyone, please stay safe and healthy during these times.”
