INDIANAPOLIS (FOX19) - The 2020 Indiana State Fair has been canceled due to concerns over COVID-19.

A modified State Fair 4-H Livestock Show with additional activities will be held at the State Fairgrounds in August.

“Safety is our number one priority. We’ve spent months working through options that would allow us to host the Fair,’ said Cindy Hoye, Executive Director of the Indiana State Fair Commission. “Agriculture and youth are the foundation of our mission and the heartbeat of the Indiana State Fair, so we are determined and proud to honor our 4-H members with a version of that State Fair experience that allows Indiana’s youth to be recognized for their dedication and hard work.”

In 2019, nearly 879,000 people attended the Indiana State Fair.
