2020 Taylor County Fair canceled due to Covid-19
MEDFORD, WI -- The Taylor County Cooperative Youth Fair board regretfully announces the postponement of the 138th Taylor County Fair to protect the future of the fair and the community’s safety.
The decision was a two-and-a-half month process with many discussions. With the groups that have already canceled their plans for the fair and social distancing requirements, the fair would not be recognizable. The board wants to come back in 2021 stronger than ever.
The board, which is made up of people representing the area youth groups and at-large members of the community, listened to advice from the public health department, insurance agents, carnival, Wisconsin Association of Fairs, and community members.
The fair appreciates all the effort of volunteers, the exhibitors, and vendors for the 2020 fair and look forward to working with everyone on the 2021 fair. The board will continue to meet to plan for the 2021 fair as well as a demolition derby to be held Saturday, Sept. 26. The 2021 fair will be held July 22-25, 2021.
The Taylor County fair would like to thank the community for their past, present, and future support.
