Yuma County moving forward with fair in August

From Yuma County Fair Board
The Yuma County Fair Board realizes that uncertainty is hard on everyone, especially our FFA/4-H families and friends of fair.
We want you to know that there will be a 2020 Yuma County Fair and we will make it look as normal as possible while still adhering to recommended health protocols. We are closely monitoring the always changing situation with COVID-19 and working closely with Yuma County Government to ensure all Federal, State and Local guidelines are followed.
What the 2020 fair looks like exactly, what the daily schedule will be exactly, how the public can be a part of the fair is still uncertain. Unlike other large counties or public events, we are small enough that we still have some time on our side and official decisions will not be made until early July.
4-Her’s should be moving forward as they would any other year, sponsors should still be showing their support and most importantly, everyone should know that we are working very hard to balance everyone’s desires and health while keeping the best interests of the kids in mind at all times. We, along with Extension, remind you that you do not have to exhibit at county fair to complete your project.
We hope it brings some relief to hear that we will be having fair, that we will do our best to give you a platform to showcase your project, and we ask that you allow us the time and grace we need to formulate and plan for one of the best weeks of the year!
