HUNTER VALLEY ARMS FAIR 2020 ` CANCELLED

3rd August, 2020

Regrettably we aren’t going to be able run a 2020 Hunter Valley Arms Fair this September.
We’d put quite a bit of time into preparing advertising and being ready to kick off in mid-July including preparing NSW Gov’t mandated Covid-10 Safe Plans and acquiring the necessary Covid-19 signage, hand sanitizer and contact tracing system etc. etc….
We were ready for ‘off’…….
Unfortunately Covid-19 has conspired to thwart our planning.
It is unclear as of today’s date whether we could legally run a fair or not.
As I write the factors which have influenced our decision are:-

  • The health and well-being of our patrons and dealers must be our primary concern during this pandemic
  • Many of our dealers & clientele are in the ‘at risk’ category due to their age
  • Venue ‘maximum patron numbers’ has decreased significantly.
  • The Vic borders are now closed till at least mid-September (5 x dealers)
  • Qld borders are open but require a permit (7 x dealers)
  • A lot of our promotion is pitched at clubs within a 300km radius of Maitland. Most gun clubs, pistol clubs and rifle ranges are either closed or are only allowing reduced numbers when the range is open
  • Magazine advertising deadlines for August and September are passed or about to pass
  • The Covid-19 situation is very fluid and may get significantly worse before it gets better


We take this opportunity to thank you for your past patronage and support.
We have already booked the venue for the September 2021 Hunter Valley Arms Fair.
Yours faithfully,
Hunter Valley Arms Fair.
