Due to circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the Thayer County Ag Society, in cooperation with the Thayer County 4-H Council, met June 4, 2020, and decided to cancel entertainment (including races), open class entries, vendor booths, and food service for the 2020 Thayer County Fair.

The Ag Society is committed to celebrating the work of area 4-H and FFA members. Thayer County 4-H and FFA contests (both static and livestock) will go on in person with modifications that follow the current directed health measures set by the Nebraska Governor’s office along with recommendations from the Public Health Solutions District and Thayer County Emergency Management. Complete guidelines will be made available to 4-H/FFA youth and families as more details are decided.

The Thayer County Ag Society values the safety and health of community members and is grateful for the community’s support and patience as they navigate this situation.
