Clayton County Agricultural Society Postpones 2020 Clayton County Fair Until 2021; 4-H/FFA Shows to be held

On June 8 the Clayton County Agricultural Society, sponsor of the Clayton County Fair, postponed the Clayton County Fair until 2021 due to continued restrictions of Covid-19.
The Clayton County Extension Council, staff and the Youth Development Committee are moving ahead to provide a 4-H & FFA Achievement Show for youth to showcase their exhibits in livestock, static, clothing & communications.  Plans are being made for a limited audience “Show and Go” livestock exhibition and contact-free static exhibit judging and limited-contact clothing event & communication judging.
The health and safety of our 4-H members, families, volunteers, staff, and animals are the primary concern in making this decision. Clayton County Extension and Outreach must follow the guidance of Clayton County Public Health and Iowa 4-H.
This year has been full of difficult decisions and learning experiences. This is not a decision we ever imagined we would need to consider. We ask for your patience and kindness as we prepare materials and information for 4-H and FFA members who still choose to participate in the modified events. Some may choose that these events are not what they would like to participate in this summer and others will choose to participate. Like every year, fair is not a requirement to be a 4-H member.
What is next?
• Fair Entry is currently open and will close on July 1.
• Updates regarding schedule and classes will be shared to your 4HOnline email and posted on our Facebook and on our webpage www.extension.iastate/clayton
We thank you in advance for your patience and support.
