Past County Fair Information

COUNTY FAIR STATUS: Per Governor DeWine, all 2020 county fair activities except junior fairs, were cancelled effective July 31. Games, rides, and grandstand events were eliminated from the fairs. Under the order, a 10pm curfew also was in effect. Livestock competitions and other 4-H and FFA competitions for youth continued as planned. Horse racing, without spectators, continued as planned. Per the governor’s statement, although fair boards and local health departments have done a good job of planning and preparing for the fairs to-date, COVID-19 cases increased in conjunction with early fair activities, prompting the cancellation.
(as of July 28, 2020) --- The Ohio State Fair has been cancelled for 2020, per the Ohio Expo Commission.

Also as a reminder, all in-person Ohio 4-H camps were cancelled for summer 2020.
