The 2020 Emmet County Fair will run July 20-26 with static and agricultural exhibits, but without spectators.

For the static exhibits, judges will score the individual entries without in-person conferences on Tuesday, July 21.

Animals will not stay in the stables and pens at the fairgrounds, but will be show-and-go with exhibitors and immediate family only.
