Everyone's Goin' to the Kandiyohi County Fair


We hope you had a great time and created fun Fair memories!!  A special "Thank YOU"  to all of those involved in the Fair. It takes so many wonderful people in many different areas to hold a County Fair. Without all of YOU we would not be able to offer a place for family traditions, youth education, entertainment and for the community to showcase the awesome County of Kandiyohi!!

Cancelation of the 2020 Kandiyohi County Fair (see below)

It is with great disappointment; the Kandiyohi County Fair Board announces the cancelation of
the 2020 Kandiyohi County Fair. We were hoping to not make this kind of announcement. But
considering the current conditions and uncertainties of COVID-19 restrictions the board felt this
was the best decision for the Kandiyohi County Fair and everyone involved in our Fair.

While cancelling the Fair was not an easy decision, the board agrees, it is the right thing to do.
Our priority is the safety and health of our community, volunteers, vendors, carnival, 4-H and
FFA youth and our exhibitors. We’ve made this decision early understanding requirements
during the COVID-19 Pandemic, including physical distancing and frequent sanitizing will not
change in enough time to give our community a meaningful and enjoyable Fair experience.
Asking our vendors, exhibitors, carnival and volunteers to wait longer for unknown and very
unlikely changes to these restrictions, is unacceptable. We realize that many involved in our
Fair have preparations and expenses that need to be addressed soon.

We know this announcement is upsetting for our supporters and participants who look forward
to the Kandiyohi County Fair. It is also unimaginable for the Fair Board members as well. This
has been a heartbreaking decision.

Again, our main concern is for the safety and health of all. We appreciate your support,
understanding and patience, as everyone is experiencing many summertime losses. 2020
would have been the 120 th Kandiyohi County Fair. We look forward to celebrating 121 years
next year at the 2021 Kandiyohi County Fair August 11-14 th .

To our community for your continued support of a “Family Tradition” the Kandiyohi County Fair!
Everyone’s Goin’ August 11-14, 2021
