The Will County Fair has been canceled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“It has been a challenging time across the world, as so many events try to find ways to continue traditions that have lasted generations, going back well over a century, while keeping social distancing and health at the forefront of every step we take,” the fair board said in a statement on their website this week.  “With that being said, the board of directors with great discussion and planning, has had to make the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Will County Fair, August 26th – 30th.”

During a July board meeting, directors discussed the possibility of still having a demolition derby in the fall with the possibility of having outside vendors.  No final decision has been made.

The Jasper County Fair is the only local area fair still on for this year.
