Dear Friends of the Winona County Fair,
It is with deep sadness that the Winona County Fair Board made the difficult decision tonight to cancel the 2020 fair due to the COVID 19 Virus.
After reviewing the Minnesota Stay Safe Plan issued by Gov. Walz last week, we realized there is little possibility for Minnesota large public gatherings to be allowed to open by July 8. We have also been encouraged by Winona County officials to cancel for the health and safety of all people involved with the fair.
Please know the fair board realizes the financial impact this decision has on the many attractions and vendors booked for the 2020 fair, and the disappointment to be felt by the people who enjoy attending the fair. This is however the responsible decision to make for the protection of everyone.
The fair board will soon begin planning an even bigger and better event for next year. Please join us July 7 to 11, 2021!!
