Washington County Fair Canceled Due To COVID-19 Pandemic

(WASHINGTON CO.) – The Washington County Fair, scheduled for June 13 – June 20 with a kick-off parade scheduled for June 7, has been canceled.

This will make it the first time in 81 years the fair has been canceled. The decision comes following Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb’s order that no county fair can be held before July 4 of this year.

On Friday, Holcomb outlined his Back On Track Plan to open the state to regular business in five stages. The fifth stage is expected to take place in early July and would allow conventions, sporting events, fairs, festivals, the state fair, and like events to resume after that date if certain guidelines are met.

There are a total of 17 fairs in Indiana that are in jeopardy of being canceled or moved due to the limitations to stop the spread of COVID-19.
