CHOCTAW, Miss. (WTOK) – Another popular, East Mississippi fair cancelled in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic is returning this year!

The Choctaw Indian Fair will take place July 14-17 in Choctaw, Mississippi. The announcement was made Tuesday afternoon.

The return of this very popular and successful fair is a strong indication that many communities are re-opening and returning to some type of normalcy after a year of mask mandates, shutdowns and pandemic-related restrictions.

The Choctaw Indian Fair is part of a growing list of festivals and fairs that have either returned or will return this year. Newton’s Loose Caboose Festival was held earlier this month after a COVID019 related hiatus. The Jimmie Rodgers Music Festival was also re-launched in April. Meridian is also planning to hold its annual Threefoot Festival next month.

Here’s the full press release The Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians sent to WTOK Tuesday:
