The 2020 Becker County Fair Has Been Canceled
The Becker County Agricultural Society’s Board of Directors voted unanimously at its June meeting to cancel the 2020 Becker County Fair which was to be held July 29th – Aug 1st. The board considered continued restrictions on large group gatherings due to the COVID-19 pandemic and related uncertainties, in its decision. The 127th Becker County Fair will be postponed until the summer of 2021.
The decision to cancel this year’s fair was not made lightly as it impacts many individuals, organizations, and businesses in Becker County and surrounding communities. Yet, we believe it’s the right decision for all involved. Several factors were discussed before making the decision: restrictions on gathering size, social distancing requirements, health monitoring requirements for staff, the health and safety of the community, fair vendors, carnival, staff, exhibitors, and volunteers, as well as to preserve the financial ability of the Becker County Agricultural Society to present future fairs.
The board has dates in mind for the 2021 fair, but until we get confirmation from our vendors & entertainers, those dates will not be announced at this time. The Becker County Fair would like to thank everyone for their continued support. Without you, the fair would not happen. We will be back in 2021!
Please contact our Board President and Fair Manager, Keith Sonnenberg, for more information.
