After careful thought and deliberation for the well-being of our fair volunteers, vendors, and patrons, and due to the recent regulations set by Governor Pritzker and seeking guidance from the CUPDH, it’s with great sadness that we announce this year’s Champaign County Fair (July 23–Aug 1, 2020) has been cancelled. 4-H Exhibits will be held digitally, and The Beach Boys concert has be rescheduled to next year, July 2021. The fair board and staff, who put their blood, sweat, tears, and love into the fair—and we are as heartbroken as you are. Please respect those who work hard to make the fair a reality every year and refrain from negativity during this time. We are also mourning the loss of our favorite 9 days of summer, and missing the friendships that will have to be put on hold until next year. We would like to thank our volunteers, and the entertainment, food, retail, and carnival vendors, for their understanding. We hope to see you all next year when Champaign County Fair will return stronger than ever.
