The Hamilton County Fair will be postponed until 2022 for a variety of reasons including a limited number of available vendors and ongoing uncertainties surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
Organizers said in a news release that "in the interest of our visitors, volunteers, vendors, exhibitors and community, the Hamilton County Fair will be postponed until fall 2022."
It noted in the release that the decision, while "difficult" to make, was made because of the limited availability of vendors, volunteers and public sanitation and safety equipment, coupled with vendors' ongoing concerns for public health. It further stated that without those resources, the county did not feel like it could present the type of family-focused event citizens have come to expect.
Friends of the Festival announced last week that the Riverbend Festival will also be postponed to 2022.
