Health and safety considerations in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic have resulted in the cancellation of most activities at the Union County Fair. Resultantly, the NTPA Regional National truck and tractor pull planned for Saturday, July 31 in Marysville, Ohio, has also been cancelled and will not be rescheduled in 2020.
The tentative date for the 2021 event in Marysville is Saturday, July 30.
The fair board unanimously decided to hold only a Junior Fair and harness racing but no grandstand entertainment or midway rides.
The following is a portion of the release posted to Facebook by the Union County (Ohio) Fair Board on Thursday, May 28.
At tonight's emergency fair board meeting, the board discussed Governor DeWine's announcement today and unanimously voted to hold a Jr. Fair and harness racing only. There will be no grandstand entertainment, no midway rides, no open class and limited to 4H/FFA exhibitors and families only.
There are many details yet to be determined and we ask for your patience as we work on these in conjunction with our health department.
