74th Annual Alto Fair Cancelled

Another long-running fair
has been cancelled. The Alto Fair Board making the announcement that this year’s
Alto Fair, originally scheduled for August 12-13, will not go on. Safety and enjoyment of the fair have long been the priority, but the feasibility of following CDC recommendations would have meant huge challenges in social distancing and limit the number of people who could attend. The board did
say they are looking at a possible online auction event for livestock
exhibitors and sponsors. The board will now look ahead to the 75th Alto
Fair, set to run August 11-12, 2021.
