Important Updates Fair 2020:
Due to the concerns for the safety and well-being of fair visitors, volunteers, vendors and exhibitors and after significant and thorough consideration, both the Monroe County Fair Board and the Monroe County 4-H Board (4-H board sets local policy regarding 4-H exhibition portion of the fair), have voted not to continue with an in-person Monroe County Fair for 2020. This decision was made in consultation with multiple members of Monroe County Government including the Monroe County Commissioners, the Monroe County Health department and Purdue Extension- Monroe County.

The uncertainty around planning for large gatherings, as well as the concerns regarding proper implementation of COVID-19 safety protocols at such a large venue, also contributed to the very difficult decision to cancel this beloved community event. The Fair Board is working to contact vendors, commercial exhibitors and other entities which had planned to participate in the 2020 fair.

In order allow Monroe County 4-H youth an opportunity to showcase their work, the Monroe County 4-H Board of Directors will be designing an alternate virtual format for those exhibitions. 4-H families will be provided information regarding virtual exhibition as those plans become finalized. The Monroe County Fair Board and Monroe County 4-H Board look forward to working with their partners to host the fair, a great community tradition, again in 2021.
