SIOUX CITY -- There won't be a Woodbury County Fair this year.

In a Facebook post, the Woodbury County Fair Board announced its decision Tuesday to cancel the event. Other major fairs, including the Iowa State Fair and Plymouth County Fair, have also been called off.

The 92nd annual Woodbury County Fair was scheduled to run Aug. 5-9. In a Facebook post near the end of May, fair organizers wrote that a tentative decision had been made to proceed with 4-H/FFA livestock and static exhibits and bottle baby fair.

"We continue to work with Woodbury County Extension in regards to a 4-H livestock and static exhibit event, and hope to have more information in the coming days. Please understand that there are many things to consider when making a decision like this. We also know that the community will have a wide range of emotions following this announcement," Tuesday's post stated.

Those who have paid for tickets, camping fees, vendor fees or sponsorships for 2020 can receive a refund, hold over their fees until 2021 or donate the money to the 2020 fair.
