East Otter Tail County Fair is Postponed until 2021
The East Otter Tail County Fair is postponed until July 2021. We were hoping to not have to
make this announcement but, after careful consideration and with the consultations with the
county, state, and other organizations regarding the health and safety of everyone in our
community, visitors, volunteers, exhibitors, our long time fair partners, and supporters, it is
with heavy hearts that we have made the difficult decision to postponed the 110th year of the
East Otter Tail County Fair that was scheduled for July 23-26, 2020 in Perham, Minnesota.
Our mission is to promote agriculture and education in our county and communities, with the
current restrictions concerning COVID 19 pandemic, social distancing, wearing masks, the need
to sanitize everything basically associated with the fair would be impossible to meet the
standards for attendees to gather safely in a large group setting. The fair board in good
conscience, cannot risk people getting sick, or worse, because of attending the East Otter Tail
County Fair. It is the reality of the current situation.
The East Otter Tail County Fair is extremely proud of the public support it has received over
the years, all of our awesome sponsors, those that volunteer, the community organizations,
the vendors, the exhibitors and everyone that provides a positive experience and contributes
to the success of the East Otter Tail County Fair to continue for not only the last 109 years but
for the next 100 years plus!
With this decision made we can refocus our energy towards the continued improvements and
projects on fairgrounds. We would like to thank you for your support and understanding
during this difficult time. We are confident that together we will be strong and can work
through this challenging time.

Mark your calendars for July 22-25, 2021 when we can gather and celebrate 110 years of the
East Otter Tail County Fair because “We are Fair Strong”!
