Not great news from Governor Dewine today, but we will still continue to plan for a full fair in 2021. In Florida the fair season has begun and they are fully operational. We’ll hope for the same as Ohio fairs start this Summer!
From Ohio Fair Managers Association Today we are disappointed with Governor DeWine’s veto of SB 375, which would have created a state working group to consider safe and hygienic operations for fairs during the coming season. This bill, in voiding the July 2020 health order that allowed only junior fair programming, would have given the early green light to move ahead in planning full fairs. At this point, work continues as we strive to ensure that county and independent fairs will indeed have the opportunity to move forward all aspects of their fair.
