The Illinois State Fair has officially been canceled.

It comes as no real shock to me at this point that the 2020 Illinois State Fair has been canceled due to concerns about the coronavirus pandemic. But the official announcement has been mad on the Illinois State Fair's Facebook page, to see the official video statement from the Illinois State Fair about the cancellation click here!

In the video posted to the Illinois State Fair's Facebook page they talk about how the health and safety of the people coming to enjoy the fair was of the utmost importance in making the extremely tough decision to cancel the Illinois State Fair.

There were many big acts that had already canceled their tours including Chris Young, that I'm sure made this decision to cancel the fair even easier. For more information on the cancellation of the Illinois State Fair click here!
