NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – The San Juan County fair is the latest event to be canceled because of the coronavirus. The county fair board says after a long deliberation they decided they could not move forward with the fair safely. This will be the first time in the fair’s 138-year history that it’s canceled. Officials hope to plan a bigger and better event next year.
“It has become clear that there is no way to continue to plan for an event which draws crowds numbering in the tens of thousands,” said San Juan County Fair Board President Kim Martinez in a press release Thursday. “It is in the best interest of the health and welfare of our vendors, fair-goers, and the community at large to cancel the event.”
