The 2020 State Fair Of Texas has been canceled due to the spike in coronavirus numbers. This is the first time it has been canceled since World War II.
In a statement released Tuesday, the State Fair of Texas Board of Directors announced that it had voted to cancel the fair because there is "no feasible way for the Fair to put proper precautions in place while maintaining the Fair environment you know and love."
“This was an extremely tough decision. The health and safety of all involved has remained our top priority throughout the decision-making process,” said board chair for the State Fair of Texas Gina Norris: “One of the greatest aspects of the Fair is welcoming each and every person who passes through our gates with smiles and open arms."
Texas recently saw a record of 8,000 reported cases in a single day last week. The fair typically draws more than 2.5 million people.
