Looks like COVID-19 will still be affecting local events in ’21.

Recently, the Schuylkill County Coalition of Historical Societies and Museums announced it’s canceling the annual History Faire at Fairlane Village Mall near Pottsville. They’re blaming COVID concerns for the decision.

The Faire was to be held on Feb. 13. The annual event at the mall draws in the numerous historical societies and museums from around the coal region.

It also draws pretty nice sized crowds. The Faire gives locals a chance to see some Schuylkill County history up close and meet local historians.

“We look forward to the History Faire every year, so we were disappointed that we had to cancel it,” Schuylkill County Historical Society Executive Director Diana Prosymchak says. “But we expect to be back at the mall in February 2022 with a terrific get-together for people who love local history.”
