The Greene County Agricultural Society’ presents the 181st ‘Greene County Fair’ Tuesday, August 4, through Saturday, August 8, 2020 at the Greene County Fairgrounds, 120 Fairground Road. Xenia, OH.
“We are absolutely thrilled, in these unusual times, to present a smaller version of our fair.” said Dan Bullen, a director for the Greene County Agricultural Society.
“We went above & beyond the state guidelines to protect our fairgoers with masks, social distancing, sanitizing stations and limited access to our buildings, but after consulting with the Greene County Combined Health District they strongly recommended its best to scale back.” he added.
Currently the plan is to live stream the junior fair which showcases young people showing and selling their livestock. Details forthcoming.
“The youngsters put their heart and soul into raising livestock all year. We could not disappoint them.” Said Kala Benton, also a director for the Greene County Agricultural Society.
The following is what to expect:
*Masks are required for all individuals on the fairgrounds. Except youngsters 10 and under or those who suffer with a medical condition.
*Admission is $5 unless you bring a canned good for our local food pantry. A non-perishable item reduces admission price to $3 dollars all week.
*No rides, no games
*Minimal food vendors.
*No ground acts, no grandstand events, closed grandstand.
*Only family and close friends limited to 10 per exhibitor.
*All the above rules are in accordance with The Greene County Combined Health District
‘The good news is we will be back in 2021 bigger & better than ever!” Bullen said.
