Columbia County Fair dates announced
The dates for the 2021 Columbia County Fair and Rodeo were announced Friday, Feb. 19.
The fair is scheduled for July 12 through July 18.
The fair board has not released any additional details about what the 2021 fair will look like.
Columbia County is currently under a "high risk" designation for community spread of COVID-19, which limits outdoor entertainment venues to a capacity of 75 people at a time — but the fair is months away, and it's unclear what type of restrictions, if any, will be in effect as of mid-July.
The 2020 Columbia County Fair was canceled due to rising COVID-19 cases at the time.
The fair board, which is appointed by the Columbia County Board of Commissioners, has hosted smaller events in the past year.
The fairgrounds is currently running an online auction, which ends at noon Feb. 21. Last week, the fair board hosted a drive-thru dinner.
An in-person dinner and auction had originally been scheduled for November but was canceled at the last minute to comply with COVID-19 restrictions.
