Fair Canceled, Livestock show and sale still planned


The State Department of Agriculture in conjunction with the Department of Health, notified the Polk County Fair and Rodeo Association that carnivals will not be approved this year for fairs.

“Unfortunately, that means that our county fair will be canceled with the exception of the Junior Livestock Show/Sale,” Phyllis Caldwell said. “We will be working diligently to set up alternate Livestock Show plans for all of our Junior Exhibitors so their hard work and dedication is still showcased for Polk County.”

Caldwell said the schedule for the livestock shows will be posted the first part of next week.

“We hate this as much as you do – but we plan on being bigger and better next year,” Caldwell said, noting the commercial building is available for rent, and revenue is needed to maintain operational costs.
“We still have to pay the bills until next year,” Caldwell said.
