The Dubuque County Fair Association’s Board of Directors has spent many hours discussing how we can proceed with our mission to bring people together and provide an atmosphere where family traditions are created and continued in Dubuque County. We have asked ourselves if we can safely provide a fair by following social distancing guidelines and other safety measures. We also had to decide if it was financially feasible to have a fair during these difficult times. We have been working with several local and regional agencies to help us make this decision including, Dubuque County Extension Office, Dubuque County Board of Supervisors, Iowa Association of Fairs, several regional county fairs, Dubuque County Health Department, and other officials.
