2021 Thurston County Fair Canceled

​The Board of County Commissioners voted unanimously in support of canceling the 2021 Thurston County Fair this year. The recommendation to cancel the fair came from the Thurston County Fair Board. Instead of a public fair, the commissioners supported a closed fair where 4-H and Future Farmers of America (FFA) program participants can showcase the projects they've been working on all year. Both 4-H and FFA are youth programs and the exhibits will not be open to the public.
