Summer has been disappointing with all of the festivals and fairs being canceled. Now local fairs are coming up with unique ways to still showcase what they are all about. There is a local county fair that will bring you all that you love about the fair virtually. One of my favorite fairs in the summer is the Saratoga County Fair. I grew up in Saratoga County and have a lot of friends who are farmers and show their livestock at the fair. Plus who doesn't love all of those amazing foods that you can only get at the fair? It's sad that we won't be able to enjoy the Saratoga County Fair as we have in the past, but they are bringing it to you virtually.

According to News 10 ABC, the Saratoga County Fair announced that they will be holding their fair on the dates that they had planned but it will be all done virtually this year. It will run July 21st through July 26th.

They will still crown a 2020 Saratoga County Fair Queen and hold a pageant. Entries are being accepted until July 6th and the winner will be crowned on opening day. To apply click HERE.

The virtual fair will have events for all ages and hold contests too. They will be holding fun posts on the Saratoga County Facebook page as well. If you are interested in sponsorships, supporting the fair, and participating, you can call the offices at 518-885-9701.

The Saratoga County Fair has been operating for one hundred seventy-nine years. Organizers are disappointed that it can't be held like those of the past, but they are happy to bring it to you virtually.
