2020 Fair Update!
To our GJCF associates and partners,
I really thought that the Great Jones County Fair had experienced every stress and trauma event known to man other than a blizzard! We have endured them all. A virus pandemic has never been in anyone’s thinking or planning, and here we are in the middle of it!
It is our belief that the individuals and organizations who can plan and execute now during this pandemic are going to be in the best position for success in the future. There are many more questions than answers out there currently, so we want to answer one you might be having...
The GJCF is actively engaged in planning efforts to have our July 22-26 event as before. This year marks the 168th time we have made these plans, and we will continue. We have never made plans to “not have a fair”, and don’t want to begin that kind of thinking any time soon! This virus information changes each and every day, but we are staying focused, and want you to know we are still making preparations for a great fair!
In the meantime, please recognize the directives that professionals are giving us by staying separated or isolated to the best of your ability. This effort will be rewarded by a quicker return to “normal”. Everyone needs to do their part.
So, we will see you in July. Feel free to reach out to us if you have further questions. Stay safe and healthy!
John Harms, GM
