As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, the decision has been made to cancel the 2020 Wapello County Fair.
The Wapello County Fair Board Members announced in a press release that the 2020 Wapello County Fair will NOT be held this year. All events and entertainment will be postponed until 2021. Those who have purchased Chris Janson Concert tickets will be notified by individual e-mail; tickets will be refunded or made good for the 2021 Wapello County Fair according to each purchaser’s choice.
“Even though our entire Wapello County Board of Directors has put much effort into planning for an outstanding 2020 Wapello County Fair, our Board of Directors is unanimous that this decision to postpone until 2021 is the best choice we have at this time considering the issues with COVID 19. Our major concern is for the health of Wapello County Fair attendees and volunteers. And we also want to protect the financial stability of our Wapello County Fair.
Despite the decision to postpone the fair, races at the Eldon Speedway have not been affected at this time. Races are still planned for the 2020 season and will be held upon approval of local authorities.
