This year’s Dane County Fair may have been canceled — at least in the form it has always taken. But a number of exhibits will still be available online in an effort to keep the annual tradition alive during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The fair staff and board of directors wanted to give youths a platform to showcase their projects that could not be exhibited in-person this year through a new program called “Dane County Fair ... online.”
The digital event will feature a youth project showcase, activities and entertainment Thursday through Sunday on the Dane County Fair Facebook and Instagram pages, as well as the fair’s website, starting at 9 a.m. and ending at 8 p.m. on each of the four days.
Online events include a 4-H Talent Show and Virtual Dance, Dress-A-Critter photo and video submissions, “Cribs” tour of animals’ stalls, beds and pens, coloring book pages, Dane County Farm Bureau Virtual Ag Scavenger Hunt, and Virtual Tractor Parade.
A complete schedule of events is available at danecountyfair.com.
