COVID-19 UPDATE

Never been involved in planning a fair/event. Please read the following article about all the ingredients that go into making a successful fair.

The Wisconsin Association of Fairs is working closely with our fair members as they plan for their fairs this June through September amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The Wisconsin Association of Fairs does not have the authority to cancel fairs, nor do we want to. This is a decision that will be made by each fair individually. Instead, we are networking with our fair members to help provide the best resources so each fair can determine what their 2020 fair will look like for all involved from their exhibitors, vendors, workers, carnivals, service clubs and entertainers to their patrons.

Fairs originally began years ago as a way for people to showcase their agricultural goods through competition. Through the years fairs have become the bridge connecting the consumer with agricultural education through youth organizations like 4H and FFA to open class exhibits and ag adventure displays.

The 2020 fairs may look a little different, but please know they are all working diligently to host their fair in the safest manner possible for all involved. As fairs continue to plan, we will keep you informed as they make their final preparations.

Stay safe and fair strong. Practice social distancing so we can celebrate together this summer at fairs across the state. Thank you for your interest and support of our entire fair industry.

We have three types of status to report on the 2020 fair season.

1. Modified Fairs, that are still OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.

2. Modified Fairs, that are open to EXHIBITORS ONLY.

3. CANCELLED for the 2020 Fair Season.

Here are the latest updates as of July 21, 2020 for the state aided Wisconsin State, County and District Fairs.
