OSWEGO — Here is a rundown of this summer’s farmers markets, field days, etc. around the county as presently scheduled. Most of the following information is according to that municipality’s clerk.
Village of Mexico: “We’re doing a village-townwide garage sale on the weekend of Fathers’ Day, which is June 19 and 20. I think Saturday is the biggest day.” No farmers markets.
From the Mexico Volunteer Fire Department’s facebook page:
“It is with our deepest regrets to announce that the Mexico Volunteer Fire Department Inc. has decided not to hold the 2021 Field Days. We feel that it is for the best interest of the community for safety purposes to postpone until 2022. A lot of time gets put in each year by each member that we just don’t see it being feasible to add all COVID-19 safety guidelines causing even more work. We do not like cancelling Field Days knowing it is a large event for the community. We will still be sending out our annual raffle that we hold during Field Days, please check your mail for that in the time to come. Please respect our decision going forward as we feel it is the safest move for both us and the community, there just isn’t enough guidance from the state as everything is constantly changing. We plan on holding Field Days in 2022 and hope to see you there, and hope to come back even stronger than years past. We are looking into options of other fundraisers and community events later in the summer.
