COVID19 Update and Information 5-28-20

After an in depth and careful consideration of the COVID19 CDC, State, and local health authorities guidelines for the 2020 Vanderburgh County Fair, the  Vanderburgh County Fair Association Board of Directors had to make the hard decision to cancel this years fair. Our highest priority in making this decision was the health and safety of our attendees, volunteers, 4H’ers and their families and we felt that we could not deliver that safely.  Also, the Vanderburgh County Fair is a self funded event and it would not be financially feasible to adhere to the guidelines currently in place. 
4-H members will have the opportunity to participate in a virtual fair that allows their outstanding project work to be judged and put on display virtually. 4-H families will receive more information on how to enter projects virtually. Be sure to check out the Vanderburgh County 4-H Facebook page for information on the virtual display in July.
The Vanderburgh County Fair Association appreciates your past, present and future support of the fair and we look forward to seeing everyone at the 100th Vanderburgh County Fair beginning July 26, 2021.

From the Vanderburgh County Fair Board President

WOW! It’s here! 100 Years of the Vanderburgh County Fair. What started as a livestock show in the county back in 1920, has evolved into one of the largest events in the Tri-State area. Along the way, we have educated fair goers about agriculture, showcased 4H projects, and brought some of the finest entertainment to you across those years. What’s in store for the next 100 years?

All of those things could not have happened without the commitment from the finest volunteers the fair could ask for! Thank you to all past and present volunteers and supporters of the Vanderburgh County Fair. We couldn’t do it without you. 

The 100th Vanderburgh County Fair wont look like the fair that has been in planning for the past two years. The world has made an abrupt change and now with social distancing, sanitizing and hand washing, among all the other things that have transpired this year, we hope that we can bring you an event that feels normal and one that we all can celebrate. In one way or another, let’s celebrate 100 years of the Vanderburgh County Fair!
