2020 Sharptown Firemen’s Carnival

After a very long and careful consideration, we regret to inform you that due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, and the uncertainty of the restrictions from the State and County, we have decided to cancel the Sharptown Firemen’s Carnival for the 2020 season.  The Carnival  Committee and Department Membership have agreed that is in the best interest and safety of the public, along with the members and volunteers that assist with our operations.

We have spent many hours going over the different options to be able to open, and while some restrictions have been lifted, at this time, there is not a viable path to the possibility of opening.

We will be having some fundraisers to help offset the loss from having to close Bingo and the Carnival. Please keep an eye out on our Facebook ( www.facebook.com/sharptownvfd ) and our website  ( www.sharptown.net ).

We thank everyone for their continued support and we hope to see you back at Bingo in the fall and next year at the Carnival.


Thank You,

Sharptown Volunteer Fire Department
