2020 Post Rock District County Fair Information

2020 PRD Fair Dates

COUNTY FAIR UPDATE DURING COVID-19 PANDEMIC

Each county fair is governed by a local Fair Board, yet the 4-H Youth Development events and activities which take place in alignment with the county fair are governed by the Post Rock District Board. The Post Rock District is committed to providing 4-H members with an equitable opportunity to exhibit project work to a judge, receive constructive feedback to guide experiential learning, earn ranking to recognize county-level achievement, and provide Kansas 4-H State Fair qualification opportunities. Due to the complexity of a county fair experience and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, there will be many processes in place to support the health and safety of all involved, including judges, participants and volunteers. Please know that the Post Rock District Team is taking our risk management responsibility seriously as we define what the 4-H events and activities will look like in alignment with each fair. Together we can make the 4-H related fair events happen in a safe, healthy and educational manner. Thank you for your support and cooperation!

The Smith Country Free Fair is on! There will be some changes as there will be NO Bouncy Houses, and NO Rabbits due to the Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease. All Rabbit exhibitors are to create a poster about their rabbit project. Use the guidelines in the FairBook under notebooks, posters, displays. There could be other changes as things arise, but don’t worry as we will keep you informed.

We are excited to continue and as normal as best we can. Please work with us and the health requirements we are given to follow.

There is still limited traffic in and out of our office. Also, NO meetings, gatherings, or anything of the such through July 4th. So, please fill out armory and stall reservations, and fashion revue paperwork via the online forms and e-mail to us overmiller@ksu.edu  or sgarlow@ksu.edu

Feel free to call and ask any questions! See you all in July!
