Organizers of the Bluemont Fair, which has been canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic, aren’t going to let their special annual artwork go to waste.

This year, the winning fair poster art was created by 14-year-old Emma Fajans. The design features a wreath with many of the region’s pollinators and their flowers. 

They’ve adopted the design to provide a memento of the times. The T-shirt reads: ”I would rather be at the Bluemont Fair. Quarantine 2020” It is available in male and female styles in three colors. 

Shirts can be purchased through pre-ordering by Aug. 15. The shirts cost $20 each, with shipping optional for a small fee.  

Proceeds from the sale, like all Bluemont Fair proceeds, will go toward paying for the village’s streetlights, scholarships for graduating high school students, preservation and village beautification, and aid for neighbors in need.
