Status of the 2020 Fair

We are getting many questions about the status of the 2020 Washington County Fair, understandably so. One aspect of Fairs is the tradition that surrounds them. It’s something to count on every summer.With the uncertainty surrounding all of our lives now as a result of the COVID-19 virus, it’s only natural to look towards the comfort of something that has been a consistent part of every summer. This is why we want to give you all an update.

We are hopeful we can all get together July 24 through August 2, for BIG FAIR FUN. We are continuing to plan and work towards the 2020 Fair. Of course, we cannot be sure of what changes may come our way in the days and weeks ahead, or what protocols we may be required to follow that could impact our plans. What we do now is largely driven by the directives handed down by Federal, State, and Local government agencies who are looking out for the well-being of all of us. The Washington County Fair Board and Staff have no higher priority than the safety of our Fair Family and that includes our guests, the 4-H and FFA Youth who participate in the Fair, all exhibitors, vendors, volunteers, entertainers, contractors, promoters, sponsors, and everyone on our staff. Amidst all of this uncertainty, please know we are thinking of you with every decision we make. We want to keep the community safe. We are all in this together.

Thank you for your understanding and patience as we move forward. #fairstrong
