The Linn County Fair says this year’s 4-H and FFA events will be done virtually.
The fair announced a couple weeks ago that this year’s grandstand and grounds entertainment was cancelled due to COVID-19, but the board was still hoping to find a way to hold the 4-H and FFA portion of the fair.
On Wednesday, the Linn County Fair announced in-person events will not be possible by the end of June, so the 4-H and FFA events and judging will be done on a virtual platform. Linn County 4-H County Youth Coordinator JD Waybill says while it may seem like they have more time to make a decision, the 4-H and FFA youth, their families and the staff need time to prepare for a fair that’s less than five weeks away.
Linn County 4-H is home to over 330 4-H members and over 100 Clover Kids. Most of those members show projects at the fair each year.
More information regarding this year’s Linn County 4-H and FFA fair events can be found online on the Linn County Extension’s website.
