WAUKESHA, Wis. -- The 2020 Waukesha County Fair has been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, organizers announced Monday morning.
"It is with a heavy heart that the Waukesha County Fair Board came to a unanimous, difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Waukesha County Fair," a statement released Monday reads. "Looking back at the past few months, countless hours invested, and numerous alternate opportunities considered, this was quite honestly the hardest decision ever made – but we know it is the right one."
