We would like to share information and also to clarify:
THE 2020 JR. FAIR IS NOT OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. IT WILL BE FOR LIMITED JR. FAIR PARTICIPANTS, THEIR PRE-DESIGNATED IMMEDIATE FAMILY MEMBERS, PRE-REGISTERED LIVESTOCK BUYERS AND DESIGNATED VOLUNTEERS.
As we are planning and putting into place many procedures for the JR. FAIR ONLY fair week, we want to make sure that information is shared as quickly as possible. Please have patience because planning this event has been more intense than planning our regular fair. Nothing is the same and this has been like planning for an event for the first time ever. As procedures are finalized, we will post them on the Randolph Fair website. Thank you for your support and understanding!

Unfortunately, COVID-19 has caused the cancellation of most events. The events scheduled in July and beyond are still on the calendar pending direction from the state and/or the event coordinator. Please check with the coordinator/contact person of an event to see if cancelled. The fair office does not always have current information. We will keep the schedule updated as best we can.
