(Cape Girardeau, MO) – From the SEMO District Fair Main Office:
To all our SEMO District Fair network,
Planning each edition of the SEMO District Fair is a year long effort by a dedicated team. This team includes Fair Board members, numerous volunteers, our valuable vendors and concessionaires, as well as our supportive sponsors.
The SEMO District Fair, along with everyone else, has been somewhat side-tracked by the COVID-19 virus. Numerous fairs, festivals, homecomings, and other celebrations have been canceled or at least postponed from their regular 2020 event dates.
WE HAVE NOT! WE ARE ON SCHEDULE!
Behind the scenes and from remote locations, our planning (while maybe slowed down) has continued.We monitor COVID-19 information from our city, county and state authorities and various trade associations in our decision-making to move forward with the 2020 Fair. It seems there may be a sense of direction becoming more clear. COVID-19 is still here and will have to be dealt with in an informed manner. We get that.
We will incorporate safety measures suggested by various sources as best we can. The safety of our own staff, our volunteers, the exhibitors and fair attendees is always highly important to us, even more so with this new, uninvited virus.
Thanks so much for your past support. We hope to provide meaningful updates as we move forward.
