At yesterday's regular meeting of the Hartford County 4-H Fair Association, the decision was made to cancel the 2020 Hartford County 4-H Fair, scheduled for August 14, 15, 16, 2020, due to COVID-19. Our priority is the health and safety of 4-H youth, their families, 4-H volunteers, vendors, fairgoers, and animals.
In the 84 year history of the Hartford County 4-H Fair, the fair has only been cancelled due to World War II. This decision was made based on a review of state and federal guidelines, industry best practices and additional information specific to the implementation of our fair. We commend the Fair Officers for their leadership during this process.
Hartford County 4-H Members are encouraged to continue working on their 4-H projects, as conditions permit. Alternate evaluation methods of 4-H projects are being explored and additional information will be shared in the coming months.
We look forward to when we can be together again,
Hartford County 4-H Fair Association
