Welcome

Covid-19 update 6/25/20

The Marshall County Fair is still a go.  Please note below our updated schedule and it will continue to change as we get closer to the fair dates.  Some highlighted changes:  Carnival is cancelled. Figure 8 and Demo Derby are postponed to Fall with a date TBD.  We are condensing the schedule and Tuesday activities will be either moved to a different day or cancelled.  The Livestock Auction will be moved to Monday evening.  The cake decorating/fashion review and cake auction will be cancelled.  All Livestock Open Class exhibits are limited to only Marshall County residents for this year.  There is still a lot of unknowns at this point but we hope this information helps to give our communities some hope and encouragement to continue with preparing their exhibits for the county fair.  Please watch for other updates on this page and through social media as we get closer to fair time.
