Scout Fair will not be held in 2021.
Scout Fair is an annual event where Scouts and the entire family visit hundreds of booths with fun activities run by our units and community partners.
Due to the ongoing spread of Covid-19, there is significant uncertainty concerning the ability to conduct mass gatherings in Harris County in the spring of 2021. This uncertainty, coupled with the impending need to commit financially to secure the Scout Fair facility, has driven urgency in making a decision regarding whether the Sam Houston Area Council will be able to conduct Scout Fair in 2021. With the safety concerns of our Scouts and families at the forefront, the leadership of the Sam Houston Area Council has made the difficult decision to cancel Scout Fair for 2021, in consultation with our Enterprise Risk Management team and local health officials. More information about future Scout Fairs will be made available over the next several months as they are determined.
The council is dedicated to helping units and Scouts earn money. It is important for Scouts to learn the values of fundraising, earning their own way, and the necessity of fundraising. Learn more about the 2021 unit fundraiser that can be completed totally online.
