St. Joseph County 4-H Fair cancelled
The Fair Board has cancelled this year's St. Joseph County 4-H Fair.
The board considered Governor Eric Holcomb's Back on Track Indiana plan for in-person events and found it wasn't financially or logistically feasible to host it this year.
While the fair is cancelled, 4-H is not. There will be a virtual fair to give 4-H members an opportunity to exhibit their projects and be recognized for their efforts. More information will be released about this plan at a later date.
"Please know, this decision did not come lightly. This is the most emotionally difficult decision the Fair Board has ever had to make. We look forward to being together in person again in 2021, and plan to come back stronger than ever," fair officials stated in the press release.
The fair had been scheduled for July 3-11.
The Starke County 4-H Fair has also been cancelled.
