COVID-19 UPDATE

May 29, 2020

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.

As of today, May 29, 2020, 60 of our 75 state aided Wisconsin State, County and District Fairs are planning on hosting their 2020 Fair.

Webinar Materials

The Wisconsin Association of Fairs and the UW Extension have partnered together to host webinars to help fairs find resources when making alternative plans for their fair this season. Our first session was held May 26, 2020 and can be watched using the following link as well as the pdf resource.

May 1, 2020

The University of Wisconsin-Madison Division of Extension has posted a page of FAQs to respond to some of the questions from the 4-H community and from partners related to Extension, 4-H, and fairs as we face limitations on our programming. Please see this helpful link below.

Extension, 4H, Fair FAQ

April 11, 2020

In lieu of the letter that came from UW Extension, the Wisconsin Association of Fairs feels it’s important to remind fairs of what we’ve been sharing for the past two years as we’ve worked with UW Extension. We are working together to clear the muddy perceptions out there right now.

FAIRS are in control of who can exhibit, participate and/or attend your fair. Programs like 4-H, FFA, boys and girls clubs, etc. are attending your fair with your rules. We work with these programs so we can provide the best opportunity for people to showcase their educational projects.

UW Extension is canceling May and June face-to-face events, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t working on alternative ways to help you get credit on the projects you are working on meeting the educational needs these programs were designed for.
