The Minnesota State Fair has been canceled this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, but no decision has yet been reached on whether the 2020 Becker County Fair will take place July 29-Aug. 1 as scheduled.

Fair Manager Keith Sonnenberg said Friday, May 22, that a final decision on whether to hold the event will be made at the board's June 8 meeting.

"I will let everybody know on June 9," he said. "I'm mostly waiting to see if our carnival's going to be making the trip up to Minnesota this year."

Updates about the 2020 event will also be posted at the fair website,, as well as on its Facebook page.
