In complying with the state guidelines for the COVID-19 pandemic and complete regard for the safety of all concerned, the Kane County Fair Board of Directors has made the decision to cancel the 152nd annual Kane County Fair scheduled for July 15-19, 2020.

"With all of the parameters concerned with social distancing and our complete and utmost regard for the well being of everyone involved," said Larry Breon, board president, "this was the most difficult, yet most responsible, decision that had to be made."

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

"The Kane County Fair has been a long-time community partner with the support of the Illinois Extension 4-H Development Program, our Kane County farm families, Fantasy Amusements, and all of our vendors, entertainers, and exhibitors," notes Breon. "Our fair success is also attributed to the thousands of individuals, families, and children who attend the Kane County Fair each year as they continue a cherished tradition."

In addition, the Kane County Fairgrounds hosts many other community events throughout the year which are held by a number of other businesses and event promoters, including the Kane County Flea Market.

"We look forward to the time when health, safety, and normal routines will return to our communities," added Breon. "and that we can soon open the Kane County Fairgrounds for the public to enjoy. The Kane County Fair has been an integral part of many peoples lives and it will be our greatest joy to bring it back in 2021."
