Cass County Fair in Pine River Cancelled for 2020

Terri Foster, President of the Cass County Ag Association, which hosts the county fair in Pine River, discusses the decision to cancel the 2020 fair, which was scheduled for June 25th-28th.

Foster describes the events and announcements that lead to the ultimate decision.


Foster explains the board considered pushing the dates back, but other factors weighed in the cancellation.


Foster emphasized that the board will support the area 4-H clubs in attempts to have some opportunities for events this summer, but that must be decided by the clubs along with the University of Minnesota Extension Service.


The board will move forward on some fairground improvement projects and planning to return in 2021.


The Cass County fair dates for 2021 in Pine River are not set yet.
