2020 Wright County Fair Officially Cancelled

The 2020 Wright County Fair has officially been cancelled.

The Fair Board met Monday night (June 1) and came to the decision to cancel the fair due to restrictions that would have needed to be met, including social distancing and sanitizing of rides that made the idea unfeasible.

The vote was unanimous. The fate was sealed when the company that operates the midway said all other fairs it was contracted to do this summer had been cancelled and it wasn’t going to travel to Wright County just to do one fair.

Wright County Commissioner Charlie Borrell said that, despite a strong wish to conduct the fair as scheduled – the 150th celebration – once the Minnesota State Fair was cancelled in late May, everyone “saw the handwriting on the wall.”

 We will update this story Tuesday with members of the fair board to find out what factors went into the decision to postpone the 150th Wright County Fair to 2021.
