Board moves ahead with 2020 fair plans
TROY, OHIO — The Miami County Agricultural Society Fair Board met June 2, 2020 for their monthly meeting.
The board has received and reviewed the recommended guidelines from the state for conducting a county fair in 2020 and have taken no action as to canceling anything at the Miami County Fair.
At this time, the 2020 Miami County Fair, with the support of both the senior and junior boards, is continuing as planned. The senior fair board is working with Miami County Public Health to put on the best fair possible for the county, surrounding communities, and especially the area's youth exhibitors, while still protecting the health and safety of fair-goers and exhibitors. The board has made this decision with the support of the Miami County Commissioners and other local and state elected officials.
This venture will take the support of the community as the board has lost all income from the last 3 months due to being unable to make the grounds and its facilities available for events, which is the source of off-season income and funds the operation of the fair and fairgrounds. The board will be dependent on the financial support of the community and businesses, many of whom are also experiencing extra financial burdens.

2020 Jr Fair Barrow Show Announcement
During the February Senior Fairboard meeting, the Board unanimously made the decision to not offer market for market barrows at the 2020 fair in light of the current ractopamine controversy in the pork industry. Exhibitors will be responsible for the removal of the hog following the fair. Click here to download the letter about the 2020 Miami County Fair - Junior Fair Barrow Show.
