2020-Rona Club

The youth of Dane County are an engaging population of the Dane County Fair and provide a creative energy of excitement. The Coronavirus pandemic world-wide outbreak impacted the Dane County Fair, held at the Alliant Energy Center, Madison, WI with its cancellation of the 2020 Fair.  The Board of Directors assessed the risk to exhibitors, their family, Fair volunteers and the public and the uncertainty for social gatherings and the financial implications were evaluated and ultimately canceled the Fair. 

The Board of Directors announced any youth exhibitor who is aging out of participation in 2020 will be eligible to participate in the same enrolled project areas at the 2021 Dane County Fair.  The exception is only made for the 2021 Dane County Fair under the Fair Rules.

The 2020-Rona Club was created as a one-year only club to offer “any youth exhibitor who is aging out of participation this year and is enrolled in a 2020 project will be eligible to participate in the 2021 Dane County Fair within the same project areas. This exception is only made for the 2021 Dane County Fair under the Fair Rules.” This Club will give aged out 4-H members the opportunity to exhibit at the 2021 Dane County Fair as their 4-H membership term is 5K through one year after high school; FFA and some other youth organizations have longer membership terms, so exhibitors may still be allowed to show under these organizations and qualify for the extension at the 2021 Dane County Fair. The Club will provide education resource connections, advisor contact, and opportunity for the county’s eldest youth to exhibit at Fair for their final year.

The 2020-Rona Club is managed by the Dane County Fair. For questions, contact the Club Advisors listed below, danecountyfair2900@gmail.com, or our Entries Department at fair@wdexpo.com.
