The Genesee County Fair is proceeding as planned. This year’s Fair is August 24-30!
We know that there have been many questions relating to MSU Extension’s decision to cancel or limit its programming through the end of the summer. This news has no effect on the production or operation of the Fair.
The Genesee County Agricultural Society, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is an autonomous organization that produces the Fair each year. The Fair is host to 4-H, Open Youth and Adults who enter exhibits each year; this year will be no different.
This year’s program will allow youth, including 4-H, and adults the joy of entering their accomplishments for competition. To that extent, if you, during this time of quarantine, have found that you have new hobbies (fine arts, photography, culinary arts, etc.), perhaps there is a class or competition for which you can participate. Competition details and guidelines are available at https://gcf.org/exhibitorforms.html. Please contact the Fair Office at 810-687-0953 if you have questions on how to enter.
In the meantime, we ask that everyone do their part to make this period of global healing safe for everyone by following the CDC’s recommended guidelines so that we can all get back to some sense of normalcy for our families, friends, neighbors… our community.
Wishing you the best of everything,
Genesee County Agricultural Society Board of Directors
