FAIR INFO (608) 325-9159
Green County Fair
Each year, since 1853, the Green County Fair has come together with the greater community to provide educational displays, showcase exhibitors, and provide vendors and sponsors an outlet for their businesses. More importantly, it has given our community a place to gather, greet friends, spend family time, and get caught up on each other’s lives.

It’s with much disappointment that the Green County Agricultural Society & Mechanics Institute must announce that this year’s 167th Green County Fair, which was to be held July 15-19, 2020, is being cancelled. With the uncertainty of the COVID-19 situation some hard decisions had to be made in order to keep the community and fair families safe. The Green County Agricultural Society & Mechanics Institute Fair Board has reached an agreement that in good conscience, a fair could not take place this year.

Planning the fair takes a huge investment of time, energy, and money. The fair board tries extremely hard to ensure the safety of every person who comes to our grounds every year. But with this year, the feasibility of keeping thousands of our friends and family safe, weighed deeply on us. The difficulties involved in social distancing, potential of only limited numbers allowed in the gates, and the liability involved, were just some of the challenges.
Another major consideration in this decision was the economic impact on our community this COVID-19 situation has caused. Many of our sponsors, exhibitors, volunteers and community members are experiencing financial hardship due to the current situation. We felt as a board it was unfair for us to ask for more during this time to sponsor and participate in this event.

We thank all of you for understanding that this was probably one of the most difficult decisions ever faced by the Green Count Agricultural Society and Mechanics Institute. In the meantime, we are going to work hard at making the 2021 fair one to remember.

We look forward to seeing all of you at the 168th Green County Fair, July 21-25, 2021.
