GRANTS PASS, Ore. — Much like the Jackson County Fair, the 2020 Josephine County Fair is still happening — albeit in a different capacity than last year.

In a statement on Friday, organizers said that they had anticipated that there might continue to be limits on large gatherings in Oregon, and they already had a place in place.

"Community spirit and showcasing the hard work and talents of Josephine County while creating memories for our families is what we strive for every Fair year and this year will not be different," Fair director Tamra Martin said.

This year the fair will work with superintendents to create online shows for judging and educational content for families. It will also have online opportunities for livestock shows and auctions in support of the local 4-H and FFA youth.

"The Fair will be different, but we honor our traditions and are excited about being able keep that tradition alive," Martin continued.

Organizers are still working on adapting their plans as more information comes in, but they intend to be ready for the Fair in August. This year's theme is "Josephine County, No Place I'd Rather Be."

"It couldn’t be a more fitting theme for the situation we are all currently facing. It’s our hope that we will find a way to celebrate our County together, even if we can’t be together," organizers said.

There will be more information about the 2020 Josephine County Fair plan coming out over the next several weeks.
