Black Hawk County 4-H-FFA Fair – Closed to Public
July 21 @ 8:00 am - July 25 @ 5:00 pm
The Black Hawk County 4-H & FFA Fair Board has made the difficult decision to close this year’s county fair to the public due to the ongoing social distancing guidelines and additional precautions for public health. Fair board president Russell Seekins held a virtual meeting on May 14th and determined
the decision was based on an abundance of care and concern for 4-H members, FFA youth,
volunteers, and their families. Russell shared “Our focus and commitment is to the youth of
Black Hawk County”. The fair board along with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach in Black Hawk County are working to provide opportunities for the 4-H and FFA members to showcase their
talents and accomplishments despite closing the fair to the public. 4-H and FFA members will
have opportunities to exhibit projects, presentations, abilities, and accomplishments through an
adjusted schedule of judging during fair week, July 21-25, 2020. While the schedule is being
refined it will accommodate social distancing guidelines with non-conference judging, video
recording, and virtual platforms.
