Wheat harvest is nearly complete and the 2020 Greeley County Fair is just 3 weeks away! “Heroes come in ALL Shapes and Sizes” is the theme of this year’s fair. A fitting theme for our community and the entire country as we continue to fight through this pandemic.
The COVID-19 Pandemic has been hard on us all. The volunteers who serve on the Fairboard and Amusement Association Board have spent countless hours planning for a near normal county fair experience, but ultimately some tough decisions had to be made. In order to protect the health and safety of our community, our staff, and our many volunteers and patrons, the following changes will take place at the 2020 Greeley County Fair: 
The Carnival is cancelled for this year’s fair.
The All School Reunion has been postponed to a later year.
The Little Folks Pet Show held at the Long Term Care has been cancelled.
4-H and Open Class Exhibits will continue as normal.
Fair activities like the Golf Tournaments, Rec Commission Events, Turtle Race, Parade, Truck & Trailer Rodeo, and Drive In Movie will continue as planned. (see the 2020 Fairbook for a complete list of activities.)
Community Free BBQ will continue as normal, except reduced seating will be available under the Kuttler Pavilion. The 4-H Building will be open for additional seating and all meals will be served in “To-Go” containers for your convenience.
The 4-H Fair Kitchen will operate each day of the fair with a full menu. To-Go orders will be available and dine-in seating will be spaced to accommodate social distancing guidelines. This is the county 4-H Programs largest fundraiser of the year and we appreciate your support each and every year!
Hand Sanitizing stations will be available throughout the 4-H building and Kuttler Pavilion. We will also follow any local government ordinance concerning facemasks during this time.
Please don’t hesitate to call or stop by the Extension Office if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing “All of our Heroes” at the 2020 Greeley County Fair!
