The Oakland County Fair Board voted to cancel the traditional 2020 Oakland County Fair, July 10-19, 2020. The 2021 Fair dates will be July 9-18, 2021.
“We are greatly disappointed that we won’t be able to provide the full fair experience for the thousands of guests we have each year due to the COVID19 pandemic. The safety and health of the entire community, volunteers, guests, exhibitors, vendors, employees and board members is our top priority. With this priority in mind and the recent announcement from Governor Whitmer that our State may only be in phase 5 of the MI Safe Restart plan at the starting date of our fair the decision to cancel the event was made,” said LC Scramlin, General Manager.
Our Fair Board will be continuing to support our exhibitors with an exhibitor only competition, no general public or carnival, which will meet the State of Michigan’s phased reopening plan pending health department approval or a virtual competition if group sizes are too large for in person competition. Details will be sent directly to our registered exhibitors.
We are looking forward to welcoming everyone back in 2021 to celebrate the return of the Oakland County Fair, July 9-18, 2021.
