From the San Juan County Fair Board

July 9, 2020

After long deliberation, the San Juan County Fair Board has made the painful decision to cancel the 2020 San Juan County Fair because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The decision was forced due to guidelines set in the current New Mexico Public Health Orders and uncertainty of the situation going forward. This is the first time in the history of the San Juan County Fair that it has been canceled for any reason. The San Juan County Fair has taken place every year since 1884.
“It has become clear that there is no way to continue to plan for an event which draws crowds numbering in the tens of thousands,” said San Juan County Fair Board President Kim Martinez,” it is in the best interest of the health and welfare of our vendors, fair-goers, and the community at large to cancel the event.”
The year-long planning effort had already been underway with events and concerts planned for 2020. Now the San Juan County Fair Board will begin planning for the 2021 San Juan County Fair-which is expected to be bigger and better than ever.
“We appreciate the understanding of the community and are so excited to welcome fair-goers back to see their favorite event in 2021,” said Martinez
