COVID-19 has made us face many challenges in trying to hold this year’s Fair. It is extremely important that we follow the recommended guidelines set forth to hold a County Fair.
The Fairboard will have to count on you the 4-H participants and families as well as the community in ensuring these guidelines are met. Governor Dewine made it very clear in our phone conference, if county fairs do not start following the set guidelines they will come to an end.
The issues we face with COVID-19 change on a daily basis. Our ultimate goal at this time is to continue moving forward, but if things continue to get worse more changes will be on the horizon. At this time we can tell you no open class livestock entries, no circus, and Sunday’s entertainment the Stickers will not be performing.
We will do our best to keep you updated. Please be patient with us as we are trying to provide you with a safe county fair.
