(7-30-20) The following is from the Mercer County Fair Facebook page.
Thank you for your support of the Mercer County Fair. It has been very gratifying to see the continuous community support over these last few trying months.
As you know, the Fair received surprising orders on Tuesday to limit Fair activities. This has put us in the position of having to react and develop solutions. The State has not released guidelines and all we know is what was spoken in the press conference. With that being said, we know that we are unable to hold the 2020 concerts. We are looking at rescheduling options for 2021 and how that might effect refunds. We are also working with the local Health Department to see what options work best with the guidelines that are set in place. Please know that as soon as we have an answer, we will make a public announcement.
At this point, we know that the 4-H and FFA kids will be able to show their projects at the fair. The Senior Fair Board and Staff are working hard to make the 2020 Fair the best under the current directives. The schedule for the 2020 Fair is still being determined and our hopes are to be able to announce something next week once the directives are received.
Certainly 2020 has been a trying year and we are looking forward to coming back stronger in 2021. We are ready to forge forward and put the past behind us. WE appreciate your patience as we look at all options for the concerts.
The grounds may be empty now, but our hearts are full of the love and support from the community.
