JEFFERSON TWP. — This year’s Montgomery County Fair has been canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Montgomery County Agricultural Society Board of Directors has announced.
The vote to cancel was taken Tuesday at the board’s regularly scheduled public meeting.
With that vote came the board’s decision to begin planning to host a Junior Fair Livestock Exposition that will be open to livestock exhibitors and their families.
“We are just heartbroken to have to make this decision, but our priority must be the safety and well-being of our attendees and exhibitors,” said Mark Jimison, board president, Montgomery County Agricultural Society.
“We appreciate all the citizens and local businesses who have continued to support us during this difficult time, and we look forward to hosting the Montgomery County Fair again in 2021 – bigger and better than ever.”
