YREKA, Ca. - The annual Siskiyou Golden Fair has been cancelled because of the state of emergency related to the Mckinney Fire burning in Siskiyou County. This is the second time in three years the fair has been cancelled due to a state of emergency.

"We have all suffered through two full years of the pandemic and now the McKinney Fire and the unfavorable weather conditions have made the fairgrounds part of the equation to protect as much private property and human life as possible. In these situations the 10th DAA Board of Directors and Staff are not part of the equation," stated CEO Cliff Munson. "Every resource in our county should be available to protect the lives and livelihood of our community and the fairgrounds was tapped for that use."

The 10th DAA Board of Directors and the 10th DAA non profit Junior Livestock Auction Committee are working on a plan to support our junior livestock market animal exhibitors with a show and sale schedule that is being developed at this time. Officials are working on refunding all online ticket purchases in the coming weeks.
