It’s official: No Brown County Fair in 2020  (Audio)

June 17, 2020

ABERDEEN, S.D.–The Brown County Fair is officially cancelled for this year, another summertime event that’s fallen victim to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

That decision was made by the Brown County Board of Commissioners Tuesday. It follows a unanimous recommendation of the Brown County Fair Board.

Commissioner Duane Sutton says he received feedback from people on both sides of the issue…

While the commission voted to cancel the fair for 2020, they also passed a motion to authorize a working group to see what kind of community event can be held to replace the fair.
