The Fond du Lac County will go on, but in a very modified capacity. The Fair Board voted unanimously to proceed as scheduled, but with the following changes:
● The junior and open shows will continue in a safe, modified format, which enables the
exhibitors to still showcase their talent.
● The 2020 Miller Lite Grandstand acts have been postponed to 2021. The Roots and Boots 90’s Electric Throwdown, Chris Janson, and Daughtry have all confirmed dates for our 2021 Fair! Our bull riding and barrel racing, truck and tractor pull, and demo derby have also all confirmed dates for our 2021 fair.
● At this point in time, it is very unlikely we will be able to provide any carnival rides or games for our 2020 Fair.
● The Expo Building will not feature any vendors this year.
A modified FREE fair will be held for the public in a limited capacity from Thursday, July 16th through Sunday, July 19th. Parking will additionally be free. The attendance capacity of the fair will be reduced and limited by approximately 70% from its normal attendance. All individuals wishing to attend the fair must reserve a FREE ticket IN ADVANCE starting on June 19 at 10AM. It is important to note there will be NO walk-up tickets offered.
The fair will be split into two “sessions” each day with the exception of Sunday. Attendees will be able to reserve tickets allowing them to enter the fair during the first session from 10AM to 4PM and/or the second session from 5PM to 11PM. These sessions will apply to Thursday, July 16th through Saturday, July 18th. Tickets will be available for reservation for one session from 10AM to 4PM on Sunday, July 19th.
Here’s what our modified fair will include:
● Daily shows from the Sea Lion Splash attraction
● Daily shows from the Los Moralitos Family Circus
● Daily shows from Nick’s Kid Show
● Daily shows from The Barnyard Adventure Show
● Two evening shows by a variety of local bands on our stages
● Food vendors from our non-profit clubs and mobile food vendors
● To help maintain everyone’s health and safety, the grounds will be closed daily from 4PM to 5PM for cleaning.
All tickets purchased for the 2020 fair will be valid in 2021. However, refunds will be available upon request. Refunds may be credited to a credit card used at time of purchase or donated to the Fond du Lac County Agricultural Society. The 2021 FDL County Fair will be July 14-18, 2021.
