The Kansas State Fair Board is going to meet next week on Monday morning to reconsider the 2020 fair, because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Several vendors have already pulled out of the annual September event in Hutchinson because of other fairs on the circuit canceling; the Fair is also finding it tough to get volunteers and employees to work the fair.

Already, several area states including Oklahoma, Texas, Iowa, and New Mexico have canceled their fairs for this year.

Last month, the Board said the fair would go on. However, the Kansas State Secretary of Health and Environment Dr. Lee Norman has advised the Board against holding the fair.
