2020 Skagit County Fair Cancelled
Today, Skagit County Parks, Recreation & Fair made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Skagit County Fair, originally scheduled for August 12- 15, 2020. This decision comes following Dr. Howard Leibrand’s recommendation that all large scale events be cancelled or postponed through the summer.
“Our hearts go out to all those who depend on the Fair for their livelihood, showmanship and entertainment,” said Skagit County Fair Manager Aric Gaither. “The Skagit County Fair has been a flagship event in our community for more than 120 years, and rest assured that following this year, the event will be with us for 120 more.”
Skagit County Parks, Recreation & Fair hopes to bring programming back to the fairgrounds as safety protocols allow and will be providing opportunities to support exhibitors, vendors, sponsors, entertainers and others who have been impacted by the cancellation. The Fairgrounds ask that you continue to check their social media pages and website for more information.
“We are saddened that we won’t be able to host the fair this year, but public health has to come first,” said Brian Adams, Skagit County Parks and Recreation Director. “We’ve got our eyes set on the 2021 Fair, scheduled for August 11-14, 2021. We’ll be looking forward to seeing everyone there.”
Skagit County continues to encourage everyone to stay strong in the fight against COVID-19, and stay home, stay healthy.
