MOSCOW - After re-evaluation from the Board of Latah County Commissioners, the decision has been made to cancel the 2020 Latah County fair scheduled for September.
"There are many factors that have been considered but after recent large gathering events in Moscow, it is apparent that Latah County cannot realistically enforce evidence-based health and safety protocols, including those expected by our Health District and those required by Moscow’s social distancing and face covering order which has now been extended to October.
Therefore, after further review and lengthy discussion with Latah County Commissioners, City of Moscow, Fair Management, Latah County Fair Board, and the Latah County Sheriff, the decision has been made to cancel the 2020 Latah County Fair."
The 4-H and FFA livestock programs will continue with a private livestock show and general 4-H exhibits entry, on September 17 and 18, as well as a virtual market animal auction on September 19. Updates to everyone who is registered for the 4-H and FFA exhibits will be send out as they are available.
All sponsorships will be refunded, and all vendors will receive full refunds for their booth fees.
