After much discussion and contemplation, it is with great sadness that the Mille Lacs County Fair Board of Directors has decided to cancel the 2020 Mille Lacs County Fair scheduled for August 5 – 9, 2020.

The Board of Directors considered the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions and their impact on large gatherings, the ability to provide proper and adequate disinfection, and the cancellation of the State Fair, community celebrations and neighboring fairs in its decision.

The health and safety of our community, fair guests, 4-H and FFA members, volunteers, exhibitors, and vendors is our top priority. As with all of you, we are disappointed but know that the Board has made the right decision given the difficulty of enforcing social distancing requirements, providing proper disinfection and preserving our financial ability to present future fairs.
