Trempealeau County Fair canceled due to COVID-19 concerns

TREMPEALEAU, Wis. (WKBT) – The Trempealeau County Fair Board made a tough decision over the holiday weekend.

The Trempealeau County Agricultural Society announced the cancellation of the 2020 Trempealeau County Fair and the closure of the Fairgrounds through August 31, 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The risk of exhibitors, their families, event volunteers, and the public were assessed by the Trempealeau County Fair Board.

The fair board has determined that any enrolled youth exhibitor who is aging out of participation this year will be eligible to participate in the 2021 Trempealeau County Fair within the same project area. The board confirmed this is only for the 2021 Trempealeau County Fair.

The 2021 Trempealeau County Fair is set for July 15-18, 2021.
