(HILLSDALE) – The Hillsdale County Fair has been canceled for 2020.
The announcement was made on the Fair's Facebook page.
The Hillsdale County Fair Board of Directors announced that after much deliberation and review of the current State and CDC guidelines and restrictions due to COVID-19, during their June 25 meeting they met and unanimously voted to cancel this year's Fair.
Fair Board members say this decision was not an easy one, and not taken lightly, but with the advice of our insurance provider, legal counsel, the local health department and MSU Extension.
The Hillsdale County Fair Board says they are all disappointed and wish that circumstances were different. In the end, their greatest concern was with the health and well being of their volunteers, exhibitors, as well as their patrons.
The Fair Board is recommending that 4H/FFA exhibitors be offered a virtual showcase as a means of completing their project work. Hillsdale County Extension and the Fair office will be releasing details in the near future.
The Hillsdale County Fair Board says they look forward to September of 2021 and the return of “The Most Popular Fair On Earth”!
