The Bridgewater Volunteer Fire Department has decided to not hold the 2021 Bridgewater Country Fair. The safety of our members, volunteers and the community is our # 1 priority. The financial output of starting up the fair is a massive dollar amount. The BVFD is the last self-sustaining department in the State of CT. The BVFD does not take tax dollars to operate our apparatus, pay for training, maintain our property and recruit new members. The fair generates 90% of the BVFD operating budget. With all of the uncertainness surrounding the near future the BVFD will concentrate on the immediate needs of the department that we can control. As a volunteer organization we cannot in good faith risk the ability to do our main goal which is to protect the Town of Bridgewater as a Fire Department & EMS crew. Our hope is to hold fundraising events this summer that will reflect the spirit of the fair so that those who love the fair can still get a piece of that tradition in 2021.
The BVFD would like to thank all of our members, volunteers and the community for their support during the past year. Without your support we could not do what we do !!!!
See ya August 19, 20 & 21, 2022
