Friends and Patrons of the Nodaway County Fair,
It is with great sadness that we of the Nodaway County Fair Board announce that the 2020 Fair will not be taking place this year.
Because of the economic stress and uncertainties the coronavirus is putting on our local businesses and citizens, and the fact that the Nodaway County Fair is funded from the sponsorships of our local businesses, we have decided to cancel the mid-July event. We plan to return in 2021.
Canceling the fair now ensures that the Nodaway County Fair Board, and the sponsors who support us, retain the funds in the event that this pandemic extends into the summer months. If we wait to cancel any later, we forfeit all expenses based on how our contracts are dictated.
We apologize to those who always support our County Fair, but the steps we are taking ensure that we can come back in 2021.
