Information from WYSH Radio
The Anderson County Fair has been canceled this year because of concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic.
The fair had been scheduled for July 13 to 18.
In a press release, organizers said they had hoped to have the fair this summer.
But after consulting with state and local leaders, they thought that canceling was in the best interest of the community.
The release said organizers determined that maintaining social distancing requirements would prove to be “difficult, if not impossible.”
Fair officials did say in the press release that the Anderson County Fair will return in the summer of 2021, “bigger and better” than ever.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
