The Atchison County Fair will go on as planned with a few modifications and cancellations. Cancellations for this year’s fair include the parade and Family Fun Day. The fair will be held July 7 – 10, 2020, at the Atchison County Fair Grounds.

All livestock (rabbits, poultry, sheep, hogs and cattle) shows will continue as planned with the following guidelines:

Exhibitors will be required to have health certificates for all animals before they can show at the Atchison County Fair. Exhibitors must show health papers to a fair board member at the office before unloading. This includes pee-wees and is mandatory, with no exceptions, or exhibitors will be sent home.

Home Arts, Horticulture, and Ag Mechanics/Field Crops exhibit tags must be filled out prior to arrival. Tags will be located at the Tarkio Avalanche, Fairfax City Hall and Atchison County Extension Office in Rock Port.

Livestreaming of all shows and auction will be available to view on Facebook Live.

The 4-H Achievement Day, originally scheduled for Monday, July 6, has been postponed to a later date.
