2020 Fair Cancellation Notice

Now and always, the health and safety of our guests, our vendors, carnival workers, service groups, our exhibitors and community are our highest priority. Due to the evolving COVID-19 situation and the impact on the community health and well-being, the Vernon County Fair Board has made the incredibly difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Vernon County Fair, scheduled for September 16-20, 2020.

For more than 164 years, the Vernon County Fair has strengthened Vernon County and the surrounding area and brought people together with our Vernon County Agricultural Society Mission Statement, which is "To provide an annual County Fair for the citizens of Vernon County and the surrounding area. The purpose of the annual fair is to provide positive educational and social experiences for those who choose to participate, either as exhibitors or as attendees of the annual fair. The Agricultural Society will maintain the Fairgrounds facility in a manner which provides optimum conditions for conducting the annual Fair".

Our hearts are heavy knowing we cannot gather for our annual celebration of agriculture, education, entertainment, carnival, tractor pulls, demo derby, horse pull, draft horse show, and our youth and adult exhibits along with the outstanding food stands from our nonprofit organization, but know and always, the health and safety of our guest, participants and community is our highest priority. Although this is not the decision or outcome we'd hope for, the fair must do its part to improve community health and safety and reduce the cycle of infection.

We want to thank our community for their support and understanding and look forward to brighter, better days ahead when we can gather again to celebrate all that is exceptional about the Vernon County Fair scheduled for, September 15-19, 2021.


David Hornby, President
Vernon County Agricultural Society
