Ashland County Fair Cancelled.

Members of the Ashland County Board have voted to cancel the 2020 Ashland County Fair, saying it was not possible to hold the fair in a safe manner during the COVID-19 pandemic. The fair, which has been an end-of-summer tradition in Ashland County for more than 100 years, would have marked its 50th annual horseshoe tournament. Although at the meeting, the board passed a motion to look into holding a motorsports weekend, it was later determined to cancel this idea as well. Fair organizers said they would now plan for a return of the county fair in 2021.
