2020 Meadowlands Fair Cancelled

We’re very sorry to announce that after much thought, research, and discussion, the Meadowlands Fair Board has made the gut-wrenching decision to cancel the 2020 Central St. Louis County/Meadowlands Fair.

While the health of our community was the top priority and consideration in our decision, we know some aren’t as concerned with COVID as others. Our decision also hinged on whether Governor Walz would allow large events to take place in August. Currently, the state is in “Phase 3” which allows no gatherings larger than 25 people. Minnesota’s Phase 4 still does not allow for large events, and in the current plan there is no Phase 5. As of now, the Governor has given no heads up on when or how far he may turn his dials. Without any lead time, planning is nearly impossible.

To our families, friends, vendors, and supporters of the Central St. Louis County/Meadowlands Fair, please know our decision to cancel the 2020 Fair was not taken lightly. It breaks our heart to forgo our community’s annual get-together knowing that the date has been saved on calendars, fair entries were being created, kids have been practicing lip sync songs and saving quarters for games, and fundraisers like the River to River 5K and Fire Department Bean Bag contest won’t take place.

August in Meadowlands maybe be quieter this year, but please reserve the third weekend of August 2021 for one heckuva comeback fair. We wish our communities a safe, healthy, and happy summer.
