At tonight’s meeting of the board of directors it was agreed that we will continue to move forward as we have in planning the 133rd Delaware County Fair.

We would like to remind everyone that we are still at the mercy of state and local officials and if it’s deemed we cannot open we must comply. We ask that you all cross your fingers and toes and hope that with the good lord willing and the covid rates don’t rise we can get back to normal and see you all in August!

Because of last year's fair cancellation, the Delaware County Fair is also doing a fundraiser with a tractor giveaway. Visit www.facebook.com/DelCountyFair for details.
