2020 Fulton County Fair

It is with deep regret, that we, The Fulton County Fair Board and Racing Association, have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Fulton County Fair.

Due to the Governor’s Executive Order and subsequent Restore Illinois Plan putting so many constraints upon us, and in the best interest of the safety of everyone in attendance, we feel this is the best decision for all concerned.

We want to thank our sponsors, concessionaires, carnival, exhibitors, loyal spectators, and volunteers who contribute so much to the fair’s continued success.

The Board endeavors to work throughout the year to make the 2021 Fulton County fair even better.
Sincerely, Fulton County Fair Board and Racing Association

2021 Fulton County Fair will Be bigger and better than ever. Safety first for our 4-h exhibitors, family and public ! Hard decision but the right one!

I want to thank the Fulton County Fair Board for everything they due all year long to make our fair one of the greatest around. As I am one of the volunteers at the fair, I appreciate every single one of the present and past board members. You all are the best! Thank you for thinking of everyone's safety. To all my fair family, hang in there and we will have a great 2021 fair and I miss you all!!!! Maybe after everything settles down we all can have a big get together!!!!! Have a safe summer!!!

Thank you for your leadership and for making an incredibly difficult decision in a no-win situation. We're disappointed, of course, but we know you tried - and that means everything.

It’s not the fair boards fault. Call your Governor. If they go against his orders, the state has given the directive to cancel insurance. I don’t agree at all, and will be contacting my representatives and the Governors office. He is in Peoria today. Would be nice if the media would ask why in counties with statistics of 11 recovered cases and 1 active, does he not move on to next phase?! We are not Chicago, and have never had those numbers. In fact, health cares are struggling because of low census and furloughing. Voice your complaints to Governor Pritzker, that’s our only hope . . .

Thank you for keeping everyone safe. It’s hard to imagine a year without the fair! This is heartbreaking news, but we wouldn’t want to take the chance and have our loved ones become ill and lose their life. Thank you for all the hard work you put in throughout the year to put on an amazing fair that continues to grow and get better and better each year. Can’t wait until 2021!

This is not good cancelling everything for the yr but the governed sure goes all over but people of I'll suffer

Yes, of course we are all disappointed. The projects that won't be shown, the good times that won't be had. That being said we realize this is in no way the fair board's fault. It takes strong people to make tough decisions. Thank you for your leadership and service.

Not surprised at this! Governor P has dropped out of sight as was giving updates daily on the virus and all of a sudden the numbers were getting better! He was going 2 do his TV report only on Tuesday and Thursday but that seemed 2 go 2 the waste side! I think when the riots broke out he said screw it!

Remember this come election time! Other states are open and doing just fine. JB is only keeping us locked down to try to get federal money for him and his cronies to line their pockets with.

So sad to hear, but THANK YOU for making the decision to keep everyone safe.

I know some county fairs are doing “drive-up” concessions for the fair food vendors. Is there a chance we could do something like that as well???

Maybe with another year to plan and raise money they could hire a Professional music group for entertainment.

Very sad. Carnival and food people are suffering among others. Support people when you can!

The Lewistown Chamber of Commerce sponsored Independence Day Celebration scheduled for July 3rd is cancelled as well.

Complete bullshit. Turn on the television....people in groups everywhere. It sucks seeing what was left of good ole America follow suit with Chicago's bullshit!

Sad to see but very understandable. Will plan to see everyone at the 2021 events.

So very saddened to hear this.

I kind of figured. The way the state is dragging everything.

Very sad about this, but completely understand. Thank you to all of you for all that you do!!

It's not Fulton county's fault. This is Pritzker and the plandemic hoax he's making bank from. More Illinois corruption. Never going to change.

Sad to hear but Thank you for everything that you do!!

So I can go to 6 flags but i can't go to my small town fair?

You know if the Federal Government is not allowed to interfere with State Government, then State Government shouldn’t be able to interfere with County Government. This is bullshit.

If the governmer wanted his you know what you all be the first in line

I was expecting that. Just wasn't sure.
