The Humboldt County Fair this year is being
revised due to the Covid-19 pandemic. As mass gatherings are not
recommended this year the Fair Board has elected to cancel all
Grandstand Events. This decision was very difficult for the board.
Do the age and construction of our old grandstand we did not feel we
would be able to provide the proper social distancing for the
public. We do have a new grandstand designed that would double our
capacity which would allow us to open safer distancing, but we have
not raised enough funds at this point to start construction. We have
completed most of our electrical upgrades this year in conjunction
with the campground and new grandstand. We will have a water line
project next year which should complete our infrastructure for this
For this year we will have the Queen contest on
the portable stage on the east side of the south commons building
which will allow for outside social distancing. You may stand or
bring a lawn chair and we will have some portable bleachers to may
spread out on. No little Ms. or Mr. or 4H style show.
All livestock and shows will go on as
scheduled. Animals not staying for the Monday auction can be
released after their show to go home.
As a board we reviewed our mission statement to
remember our goal for the fair, 4H, FFA and Community.
All booster packs may be returned for full
refund. All events at the fair this year will be free. We will have
food concessions on the grounds and plenty of hand sanitizer
As always, we as a fair board appreciate our
community backing us. We are rolling all events we had for this year
to 2021 which should be one of our greatest year’s yet.
Thank you for your support and stay safe.
Jeff Haselhuhn President Humboldt County
