Due to the recent COVID-19 spikes in Jackson County and per the Jackson County Board of Health position statements, the 2020 Jackson County Fair will be postponed with all events to be held on their respective dates in 2021.


The Jackson County Fairboard has decided to follow the position statement as presented by the Jackson County Board of Health which limits large crowd gatherings to 2500 people or less. With this guidance we feel that we are unable to maintain the crowd and follow CDC guidelines at our music events, Night of Destruction and other fair events. More information on upcoming events to follow.


Night of Destruction Reserved Tickets are on sale NOW!  They make GREAT stocking stuffers, gifts or get them for yourself!

Night of Destruction includes the complete annihilation of School Buses, Boats, Appliances and pretty much anything you can put a motor in and crash it!  For more information, questions or to participate in the Night of Destruction, contact Owen Hayes via email at owenlhayes@yahoo.com or by calling 563-357-7327.
