2020 Blue Earth County Fair POSTPONED until 2021

Posted June 2020

The Blue Earth County Fair Board of Directors wishes to announce that the 2020 Blue Earth County Fair has been POSTPONED due to the restriction of the COVID19 Pandemic. It was a very difficult decision to make but the safety of everyone who would attend our Fair was important. With the current restrictions, rules and regulations, along with an uncertain future, the Blue Earth County Fair Board has made the difficult decision to postpone the Fair. The decision was not an easy one. The Fair means as much to us as a Fair Board as it does to you. We understand that many are affected by this decision. We considered many options, but in the end, safety is our top priority. We will be making the final decision on the Compact Car Races and Demo Derby around June 24th. Hopefully the Governor will open up some of the crowd size restrictions allowing us the option to host the Grandstand Events. Thank you and see you all at the 2021 Blue Earth County Fair.
