The staff of the California Mid-State Fair has announced that this years event has been canceled due to COVID-19 concerns. In a letter to the public, the board said that “after thorough discussion, the Board voted unanimously to cancel the 2020 Fair.”
Interim CEO Bojorquez said, “We are deeply saddened that we will not be able to host this year’s Fair and the decision was not made lightly. But, it is the right decision in order to protect the health and safety of our patrons. Our Board and staff will continue to focus our efforts to support our youth exhibitors and although we will miss seeing all the smiles, eating all the food, and experiencing all the fun this year, we will be back to celebrate “The Biggest Little FairAnywhere” in 2021.”
The event was scheduled to run July 22- August 2. The website for the fair has instructions on how to get refunds if you have already purchased tickets to the beloved event.
