County fair canceled
The county Agricultural Society tonight announced that due to the evolving COVID-19 situation, its impact on community health and well-being, the 2020 Columbiana County Fair has been canceled.
The safety of the Columbiana County Fair’s visitors, participants and community is the highest priority in producing the annual fair, the fair board said in a press release.
After seeking guidance from the Columbiana County Health Department officials and taking direction from the state and national health agencies, who were a large part of our decision making here, it became clear that cancellation was the prudent choice for the fair to do its part to improve community health and safety, and reduce the cycle of infection.
Provided the Covid-19 situation improves to the point where it is safe to hold mass gatherings, the Columbiana County Fair will return in August 2021.
