The Grant County Fair has canceled their 2020 event after officials say they were told by the Health District that there was no way it could be held safely.

According to a statement on the Fair website, there is still work being done to offer some type of showing and judging for youth who have purchased animals.

Director Jim McKiernan says they were told that it was possible the state would not be to Phase 4 until after summer and that, "There was no way we could manage the crowds expected and still adhere to social distancing rules."

Staff will be processing reimbursements for carnival wristbands, vendor payments camping over the next few weeks.
