All Posey County Fair events cancelled for Summer 2020

Local News

POSEY CO., Ind (WEHT) The Posey County Fair Board of Directors has announced the announced the cancellation of all Fair Board event for the July 2020 Posey County Fair.

However, the grounds will be ready for the Posey County 4-H Council sponsored livestock shows and assisting with that effort however we can.

Since organizers could not guarantee the county would be in Stage 5 of Indiana’s Back on Track plan by the time of the scheduled fair dates, and other guidelines could not be met, they say they had to cancel.

The Fair Board Directors are continuing to evaluate the option to host some weekend events at a later date this year. The Fair Board will be taking this time to continue our efforts to improve the grounds to make them more user friendly and safe for all those in the community who visit. Improvements include but are not limited to: New water lines on the west side of the fairgrounds, new plumbing in the bathrooms on the hill and exhibit building, a new PA system at the main arena, new fans in the hog barn, new flooring & paint on the community center stage, landscaping, and many more maintenance items!
