May 28, 2020 Cancellation Statement: 

Due to the evolving COVID-19 situation and its impact on the community, the fair board has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Scott County Fair.   With the current restrictions and unknown future in regard to large group gatherings and required policies and requirements, our hearts are heavy knowing that we cannot come together for our annual celebration of agriculture, education and entertainment.

We know that many people look forward to our fair every year.   However, the health and safety of the community, fair goers, volunteers, exhibitors, 4-Hers and vendors is our top priority.  We also want to be able to make future fairs the very best that they can be.

Thank you for your support and understanding as we get through this difficult time together.   Watch for some FUN contests and promotions on Scott County Fair social media this summer.

We look forward to brighter days ahead when we can gather again to celebrate at the Scott County Fair July 28-August 1, 2021.
