Press Release: Stevens County Fair Board
We were hoping not to have to make this kind of an announcement, however, it is with great disappointment and sadness that the Stevens County Fair Board is announcing that the 2020 Stevens County Fair will not be held this year. In light of the current restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic, the fair board has discussed various options such as social distancing, seating, disinfecting, and all things required to run a “normal” fair, it was apparent that it would be impossible to host a fair this year.
The health and safety of our entire community, guests, volunteers, vendors, and exhibitors is our top priority. With this in mind, we cannot risk people becoming ill in connection with a large-scale gathering such as the fair.
Although we are postponing the fair until August 10-15, 2021, we are making plans for a bigger and better fair next year. Improvements and maintenance will continue to happen this summer on the grounds in preparation for next year’s fair.
Despite the fair and all open classes being canceled for this year, the fair board will help the 4-H program in any way possible to ensure a great experience for our youth. We look forward to putting forth our entire effort in helping those young individuals that have worked so hard on their projects, and encourage them to continue proceeding with their hard work.
We would like to thank the community, guests, volunteers, and exhibitors for all their continued support. We will get through this together and have a bigger and better fair on August 10-15, 2021.
Thank you for your continued support and understanding during this troublesome time.
