Harvey County Fair 2020

July 11, 2020

An update as to the status of events for the county fair July 30 – August 3, 2020

To answer everyone’s first question, yes, we are having the fair. As long as there are no restrictions on crowd size we are continuing to plan and prepare for the fair.

After working to accommodate and make plans for their attendance, we were disappointed when informed by Harvey County K-State Research and Extension, at our July 9th meeting, that they would not be having their 4-H events at the fair. For further details you can go to their Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/harvey.countyextension/. Because there will be no 4-H Market animals or 4-H Foods exhibits there will be no premium auction this year.

Also, there will be no open class exhibits, no pedal pull, ATV Rodeo and no tug of war at the fair this year.

We are still planning on a parade and the Fair Market in the Park, Carnival, Mud Volleyball, Demo Derby and food trucks/commercial booths at the fair this year.

Check out Newton Saddle Club’s Facebook page for updates on the rodeo, https://www.facebook.com/groups/newtonsaddleclub/.

We do ask if you are not feeling well or feel uncomfortable being in a crowd please stay home. We are encouraging everyone who attends to observe social distancing practices, hand washing and recommend wearing a mask. We suggest you check the Harvey County Health Departments website for additional information, https://www.harveycounty.com/information-on-coronavirus.html.

Hope to see you at the fair!
