The board of directors of the Grant County Fair voted to cancel this year’s scheduled July event. On the Fair’s Facebook page, they posted that “the decision was made based upon the restrictions for the monitoring and enforcing of social distancing requirements, the health and safety of the community, fair vendors, carnival staff, exhibitors and volunteers, as well as to preserve the financial ability of the Grant County Ag Association to present future fairs.”

They offered support to the Grant County 4-H program in any of its activities to allow participation for exhibitors to secure a trip to the Minnesota State Fair if that is held later this year. The board expects to be back with the 2021 fair on July 15-18.
