Nope, had it week before last. Outlaw tractor pull and our local classes. Drew a huge crowd and lots of pullers. Only heard of one covid case but not sure it came from there.

Here in Logan county, Ohio was a go but they done away with some of the stuff. Still had a few rides they cleaned and wiped ride down after each time .

Ours want cancelled. It was just postponed until next year. 🙄

Not sure who the spin doctor was thinking they were fooling. The kids had 3 hogs and two beef ready to go to the fair auction.

We have a big one here, every year but this one.  From what I understand one county in Illinois dared challenge our chubby dear leader, so he pulled all their state funding and denied them any licenses to operate rides and concessions.

Well you’ve been to Vancouver, the roller coaster is a rickety treat, and the PNE is cancelled, everybody is freaking because a few cases have blown up, and sturgis had gang fights that didn’t get as much press as bikers not adhering to covid rules.

Thinkin Cherry co just got over. Said they had online auction for kids' animals. From some of the prices I heard, people supported their hard work very well.

This year’s Monroe County Fair in Monroe, Michigan in my old stomping grounds got cancelled. 

The Texas State Fair up in Dallas has even been cancelled for 2020!

I guarantee that the people jumping on the rides and eating that had nothing to do with the decision not to have fairs.

All the fair is canceled except the livestock show and auction.

It varies here from county to County on shows and auctions. Some didn't do anything, some did a one day show and online auction.  One fair had show then all the animals went to a local butcher and buyers can buy 1/4, 1/2 or full animal of meat. The fair i showed at as a kid has a show Saturday, no auction. Your on your own to get rid of the animal.

Our county fair was cancelled about 5 years ago when the grounds they had been having it on was sold for a vineyard. They offered it to the county first ,but they turned it down. They tried it in a different location, but without any rides or concessions, and it was predictably a flop.  The best county fair I ever went to was by accident. About 20 years ago my wife and I drove up to Niagara falls. On the way back we stopped in central PA to spend the night and happened on a fair in progress. The animals, the food, the rides, the people in general, all fantastic.
