COVID-19 Statement

Dear Fair Family,

As we plan for the 2020 4-H Fair and Jr. Show scheduled for July 23-26, the Lee County Fair Association continues to monitor all guidance given by local and state health officials regarding COVID-19.

The mission that has driven this volunteer board of directors for decades is simple: “the fair is for the kids.” How we can best provide the fair experience for our youth today AND tomorrow is what we keep top of mind.

A fair is comprised of many moving parts. We are talking with all our fair vendors and volunteers to determine how to create the fair experience people love and manage the risk that comes with this unprecedented situation. In addition, we are consulting with our partners at Lee County 4-H who receive their guidance from University of Illinois Extension in Champaign-Urbana.

Updates about the event will be posted here and on social media. As always, we are grateful for our fair friends who work behind the scenes, offer monetary donations, attend with their families, and share words of encouragement. The Lee County 4-H Fair & Jr. Show does not happen without all of that!

Sincerely,
The Lee County Fair Association
