Kansas State Fair canceled due to COVID-19
07/13/2020

HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas State Fair Board has decided to cancel this year’s fair amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The Hutchinson News reports that Monday's reversal came a week after the board initially voted to continue with the fair.

That initial decision sparking concern from vendors and the community.

About half of the vendors had canceled amid worries about delays with travel quarantines, difficulties in putting crews together and cancellations of other fairs. Texas, Oklahoma and Nebraska cancelled their fairs shortly after the board’s decision last week.

The board is still interested in finding a way to safely hold livestock and 4H event.
