Kosciusko County Community Fair cancelled

The Kosciusko County Community Fair has been cancelled for 2020. The announcement was posted to the fair's Facebook page on Tuesday.

The statement reads:

The Kosciusko County Community Fair strives to maintain the highest standard of safety and responsibility for our fair family.

This year has been unprecedented for its effect on the world and our lives. Painful decisions have had to be made by many people, including the Kosciusko County Fair Board. Believe me, it was not a very easy decision to make.

Unfortunately, we have found ourselves with no choice but to cancel the fair for this year. There's no easy way to say it.

There are so many moving parts to all of this, and over the past few weeks, several key components of the Fair were affected by decisions beyond our control. Making it impossible for us to continue our plan for 2020.

Our responsibility is the safety and health of our many workers, volunteers, carnival workers, vendors, exhibitors, and the forty-thousand visitors we have the privilege of hosting each year. The many health and safety requirements are simply impossible for us to achieve at this time.

Please be assured, we will be back next year, and we hope you will be too. We pride ourselves in offering a family-friendly fair. Your participation is why we succeed, and we want you to continue to participate as you have in the past.

So mark your calendars for July 11th - July 17th, 2021 for us all to gather together again to have fun and make great memories!
