Crawford County Fair President Shane Staples announced via Facebook Monday evening that this year’s fair has been canceled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Staples made the announcement via video and included the following post.
It is with heavy hearts that we make this post. Due to the implications of COVID-19, the 2020 Crawford County Fair is canceled. In these unprecedented times, it would bring us nothing but joy to be able to provide an event for people to come together as a community. But, a fair with social distancing is not a fair.
This decision was made after much research and consideration. The safety of our fairgoers, exhibitors, vendors, entertainers, and volunteers is our top priority. Believe us, no one is more heartbroken than the fair board and its volunteers. We cherish the fair, and we want to be able to continue it in the future. A successful fair will be impossible with the restrictions brought about by the pandemic.
Board members will be in touch with entertainers, contractors, vendors, etc.
Livestock exhibitors: We are working on a plan for you. We know your part of the fair started months ago, and we want you to be able to see them through. Stay tuned for details. We will post as they become available.
Advanced ticket holders: Hold onto those passes, they will be valid in 2021. If you would like a refund, please contact Dana Richter.
Sponsors/advertisers: Thank you for your support! Please let us know if you would like a refund of your sponsorship/advertising fee by contacting Dana Richter. If not, we will re-direct them towards the 2021 fair.
We appreciate your support in these difficult times. We are thinking and praying for those on the front-lines of the pandemic, and we hope you will do the same. See You in 2021!
