Dodge County Fair Cancelled

(Beaver Dam) The 2020 Dodge County Fair has been cancelled. The Fair Board says it is with deep concern for the health and safety of the community that they have come to this decision. Throughout the process organizers have been communicating with county leaders, health officials, UW-Extension staff, volunteers, vendors and the Wisconsin Association of Fairs. They say the health and safety of all people associated with every aspect of the fair is their top priority, adding that cancelling the event has been the most difficult decision the fair board has ever faced. President of the Dodge County Fair Doug Ninmann says their hearts are heavy knowing people cannot gather for the annual fair as the community has done for the past 132 years. The fair is scheduled to return in its entirety August 18th through the 22nd next year. Organizers say they look forward to be able to again celebrate all that is special and unique to Dodge County.
