As we all adapt to the uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Cass County Fairboard recognizes that these are unprecedented times and wants to thank our supporters for their patience and their concern as we work hard to make the best decisions possible for the 2020 Cass County Fair.
Please know that we are monitoring the situation carefully and working closely with our Extension Staff and FFA partners to provide the best possible experiences for our youth and community members.
We recognize our youth have been working on their exhibits for months and want to ensure that they are able to showcase their hard work this year. We also recognize the Cass County Fair is a community celebration, enjoyed by residents of all ages.
At this time, the Cass County Fair will not be making any changes to the events planned from July 22-28, 2020. As our fair dates approach, we may be making needed adjustments to honor the safety of our exhibitors and guests. We will be looking at each individual event closely, to consider the needs of our youth, volunteers and community supporters.
We plan to be flexible as requirements from the state and other governing bodies will certainly change as the summer progresses.
The Cass County fairbook is posted at extension.iastate.edu/cass with current schedule and contest and event rules. Any updates will also be posted at this website.
Again, we want to reassure our Cass County Fair supporters that we are working to provide the best possible opportunities for all during this COVID-19 pandemic.
