Elko County Fair Cancelled
ELKO, NV—AUGUST 7, 2020—The Elko County Fair Board voted unanimously Wednesday to postpone horse racing until next year — citing financial and feasible difficulties to carry out the events due to state mandates of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The official 100th annual celebration of the Elko County Fair was scheduled for Aug. 28 through Sept. 7.
Prior to Wednesday’s special meeting, Fair Board Chairman Tony Buzzetti spoke during an afternoon meeting of the Elko County Board of Commissioners — spelling out the unlikelihood of carrying out the 100th annual Elko County Fair "the way we all know and love."
For those who have already entered their horse(s) for racing, they will be refunded.
