The first Ogle County Fair was held in October of 1853 on the lawn of the Ogle County Court House. Since then, thousands of patrons have attended the fair each year.
The Ogle County Fair Association met and reviewed the pros and cons amid COVID-19 pandemic. The Fair Association discussed when it`s legal and reasonably safe, sanitizing the venue, increased social distancing to sanitization stations, temperature and health screening with highest priority of safety for fair goers.
In the interest of protecting everyone who would attend the fair, The Ogle County Fair Association took a vote and it was unanimously decided to cancel the 167 th Ogle County Fair.
