The Franklin County Fair Board with assistance from Franklin County Public Health, Emergency Management, local law enforcement and the Board of Supervisors have made some difficult decisions regarding the 2020 fair.
It is with a heavy heart that we announce our decision to cancel all non 4-H and FFA activities. Based on consultation with The Association of Iowa Fairs, and International Association of Fairs and Expositions and in compliance with the regulations put forth from local and state agencies the we feel that this decision is best. We will continue to monitor the Covid 19 pandemic in regards to 4-H and FFA activities.
Our first consideration is the health and safety of our fairgoers and Covid 19 has added a new chapter to this process.
This decision was by far the most difficult that we as a board have had to make. We work all year long to strive to make the Franklin County Fair one of the best. It is a time for families to enjoy several days of entertainment, contests, vendors, and great food. It is a showcase for the youth of our county.
For some of you, this may seem premature, but our many fair partners and vendors need adequate time to ensure that they are prepared to provide the needed services and supplies that make the fair operate smoothly.
Those of you that have purchased a POP Pass or tickets to our events may request a full refund minus service fees. We would also ask at this time, if you feel inclined, to donate your refund to the fair to help pay our fixed cost.
None of us have ever experienced anything like these uncertain times. We truly are “all in this together”. Stay safe and God bless!
2021 FRANKLIN COUNTY FAIR IS JULY 14 – 18th. Let’s make it the best fair ever!!
– Your Franklin County Fair Board

The Franklin County Convention Center improvement project last week received a major funding boost.
On Wednesday September 11, the Enhance Iowa Board awarded the Convention Center project a $200,000 Community Attraction and Tourism (CAT) grant. The Franklin County Fair Board in March of 2018 unveiled plans for the project, which includes exterior and interior improvements and adjustments that would accommodate three sizes of groups for events. The total price tag on the project is $1.2 million.
