Fond du Lac County Fair officials announced last week that the fair will proceed this summer but with some significant modifications.

On Tuesday, June 9, the Fair Board voted unanimously to proceed with the fair in a modified capacity. Given the ever-changing COVID-19 pandemic, these plans are subject to change.

In a statement on its website, fair officials said, “We are excited to be moving forward with the cornerstone of our event—the junior and open shows. Without educational opportunities for our youth, we lose our identity and the heart of our mission. The junior and open shows will continue in a safe, modified format, which enables the exhibitors to still showcase their talent.” More details regarding changes can be found below.

The 2020 Miller Lite Grandstand acts have been postponed to 2021. The Fair Board explored several options which would have enabled the fair to still host these acts this year. At the request of some of the national acts, limitations posed by the grandstand capacity, and taking in consideration recommendations of state officials, the only viable option was to postpone these events, fair officials said.
