COVID-19 HENRY COUNTY FAIR UPDATE:
May 7, 2020
The Henry County Fair Board has elected to cancel the 2020 edition of the Henry County Fair that was scheduled for June 23rd thru June 27th, 2020 due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. This was not an easy decision to arrive at, but felt it was in the best interest of our county, exhibitors, vendors, sponsors, volunteers, and all fairgoers. With the most recent State announcements for Restore Illinois and the slow progression towards Phase 5, it would not be possible or financially feasible to hold gatherings as large as our events throughout the week. We’re as disappointed as you and a tremendous amount of planning had gone into bringing you an amazing fair this year. We will soon shift gears and set our sights on bringing you a bigger and better fair in 2021! For those of you that had purchased Tyler Farr concert tickets through Eventbrite (which includes directly off the fair website), please know your refunds will come directly back to you on the card used for purchase. You will be receiving an email from Eventbrite detailing that. There is no action required on your part. For our generous sponsors, we will be reaching out to you soon to discuss options for donations made to our 2020 fair. We will also be taking a pause on our Super Raffle and returning money for ticket purchases already made. We’re uncertain what the future holds, but we will continue to monitor the situation and the fair as we’ve known it over the years will not be taking place in 2020. If restrictions ease over the coming weeks/months, we will explore options for livestock shows and potentially small events and activities to celebrate our county. Thank you for your understanding and the shared love we all have for county fairs and the fun they bring, the values they instill in our youth, and being a true piece of Americana. God Bless and Stay Safe!
