Virtual County Fairs

The state or county fair is a yearly platform to showcase the best of your community—and it's critical to your local economy. But as COVID-19 rages, fairs (along with most other large gatherings) are being canceled, rendering years of preparation by hundreds of participating kids, adults, organizers, and local businesses fruitless.
