Fayette County Fair is canceled

This year’s Fayette County Fair is the latest casualty of the coronavirus pandemic.
In a statement issued on Tuesday afternoon, the Fayette County Fair Association Board said, “The Fayette County Fair has been a long-standing tradition in our county bringing fun, food, entertainment, livestock and 4-H shows to families over the years.
“Therefore, it is with a heavy heart that we announce all events that were scheduled from July 11-17 will be canceled.
“Our main concern is the health and safety of those who participate and attend the annual county fair, so we must follow our state’s current executive order and Restore Illinois plan.
“We appreciate the support of our community during this difficult time. The Fayette County Fair Association will continue to work throughout the upcoming year on improvements to bring the fair back next year.
“Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to seeing you at the fair in 2021.”
