Clay County Fair Cancelled
July 02, 2020 10:11am
Spencer, Iowa — The Clay County Fair Association announced today that the 2020 edition of “The World’s Greatest County Fair” will not be held.
The decision, announced following a vote by the Fair Executive Committee, was made amid concerns over the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. After weeks of exploring various options, it became clear that the Fair could not protect the health and safety of fairgoers, staff, volunteers, 4-H/FFA youth, exhibitors, vendors, sponsors, and entertainers during the nine-day event.
Despite the cancellation of the Fair, 4-H/FFA livestock competitions will be held this fall. Details will be available soon from Iowa State University Extension Clay County.
This marks the fifth time in the 103-year history of “The World’s Greatest County Fair” that the Fair will not be held. From 1942-1945, the Fair was suspended due to World War II.
The 2021 Clay County Fair will be September 11-19.
