2020 Elko County Fair 100Th year celebration has been canceled.
We are still having some stockhorse classes and the branding contest please read below for more information and go to the competitors page for entry information!
COVID-19 pandemic is causing disruptions and cancellations all over the United States.
Due to Governor Sisolak extending the current restrictions with no time limit as to when they will expire. Declaration of Emergency Directive 021 – Phase 2 Reopening. Sections 10 and 22 forbid groups of more than 50 people in any indoor or outdoor area and do not allow public attendance at events. In Phase 2, events with live performances and live performers will not be allowed with spectators.
Even with face coverings, social distancing, and all proper precautions in place we cannot follow most of the guidelines. The Governor, along with the Nevada Gaming Control Board, holds all control of gaming licenses. We cannot risk losing our current license or possibly ever attaining another one to continue with Live Horse Racing at the Elko County Fair in the future.
Although we did postpone the Elko County Fair 100th Celebration with Live Horse Racing, concerts, and Home Arts until 2021, we are going to try to run some events.
We will be moving ahead with the Elko NOFair Contest, a Livestock Show and Sale (formerly 4-H), some Stock Horse events, Barrel Racing, Team Roping, Muley roping, and Branding Contest. We are working out all the logistics and safety measures at this time to comply with the Governor’s Covid 19 mandates.
