Genesee County Fair cancelled until 2021

GENESEE COUNTY — In a statement released by the Genesee County Agricultural Society, in the interest of public health and safety, the 2020 Genesee County Fair has been postponed.

Travis Tritt and the Grandstand lineup have been rescheduled for the 2021 Fair.

All shows will appear in the exact same order that they were scheduled this year.

In light of these circumstances the fair has updated its Refund Policy and is offering the following choices for 2020 pass and ticket patrons:

• All existing Red Zone Passes, Fair Fun Passes, Parking Passes, Midway Wristbands, Cash Bash Tickets, Food Tickets, Sponsor and Vendor Contracts for 2020 will automatically roll over to the 2021 season.

• For those who purchased passes and wish to return their passes, the Fair is offering a window for which to receive a refund. The final day to receive a refund for any passes purchased in 2020 will be Friday, Aug. 7. Tickets can be refunded by bringing the physical tickets to the Fair Office located at 2188 W. Mount Morris, Mount Morris, MI, between the hours of 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.

• Sponsors and vendors wising to discuss participation in the 2021 event can contact Fair Headquarters at 810-687-0953 during the same hours.

With strict adherence to the Governor of Michigan’s Executive Order, the Genesee County Agricultural Society is moving forward with a Livestock, Equestrian, and Still Exhibits “Show-and-Go” Competition. This will be a private function with attendance being limited to exhibitors, their immediate family/household, and show staff.

“This past year, the Genesee County Agricultural Society has focused a more intense effort in preparing our new facility – located two miles east of I-75 on Mount Morris Road – for the future,” the statement said. “The events over the past few weeks have strengthened our resolve to move forward with even greater passion. The new site will enable us the sustainability to continue the Genesee County Fair, while also allowing bright, new opportunities to produce more spectacular events throughout the year.”
