The Fair Cares

Like many of you, we are heart-broken that the Fair was forced to cancel this year due to Covid-19. Beyond the loss of this great community celebration in 2020 are the ripple effects felt by the businesses and organizations who derive much of their annual income and fundraising from the Best Week of Summer. We’re hurting ourselves. We’ve created the Fair Cares Fund to help some of the organizations impacted most. If you are able to give us a helping hand, a portion of those donated funds will be earmarked to assist nonprofits, service groups and others affected by the cancellation of the event. The Fair had an $18.5 million dollar economic output in Benton County in 2019 and we know several of our partners are struggling for survival. We will do our best to lift them up. We will also use some of the funds help the Fair, a 501c3 nonprofit, move forward to the Best Week of Summer 2021. A 3% transaction fee will be subtracted from your donation to The Fair Cares fund.
