SAN JOAQUIN COUNTY (CBS13) — The San Joaquin County Fair has been added to the list of Coronavirus closures, which means pigs, cows, and goats won’t get their spotlight, and their young handlers may not get their money back.
According to a San Joaquin County Fairgrounds Facebook post, the Fair Board of Directors suspended the 2020 fair because of COVID-19 concerns and “the current financial situation at the San Joaquin County Fair.”
The fair was scheduled for June 18-21. The 145th Dixon May Fair was also canceled. It was scheduled for May 7-10.
The San Joaquin County AgFest, the livestock portion of the fair, is now also on the line.
The California State Fair, which is held each year at Cal Expo, is still scheduled to take place from July 17 – August 2.
