At a virtual meeting on Thursday, May 7, 2020 the Tuscola County Fair Board regretfully voted to cancel the 2020 Tuscola County Fair that was to be held July 26-August 1, 2020. The safety and health of the entire community, volunteers, guests, exhibitors, and merchants was our top priority in making this decision. 


The decision to cancel the 2020 fair was not taken lightly. Our long-standing tradition of bringing the community a fair that is packed with 4-H animals, crafts and projects, exhibitors, vendors, carnival rides, grandstand entertainment, and more is something that we wish to be able to continue for years to come. With the economic impact the current health crisis has had not only in our county, but the State of Michigan and the entire United States, we knew it was in our best interest to cancel this fair to be able to stay financially healthy. 


We are deeply saddened for the 4-H Youth who have already begun to prepare their projects in hopes of the annual fair. The safety of our local youth and their families was at the forefront of our decision. Please note that there has already been discussion about how to conduct a virtual 4-H show and auction. Look for more information in the weeks to come. 


As a board, we will continue to monitor the situation and begin working hard at planning for the 2021 fair that is scheduled to be held July 25-July 31, 2021. We look forward to continuing to provide the community with family fun and entertainment, 4-H youth exhibits and agricultural history for years to come.
