A message from the South Dakota State Fair Manager Peggy Besch:

As South Dakotans continue to deal with the unprecedented impacts of COVID-19, the South Dakota State Fair continues to monitor the situation daily. We anticipate a very different fair this year which includes a significant loss in revenue and are looking for every opportunity to reduce or eliminate non-essential spending.  As a result, we have made the decision to not order any ribbons, plaques, rosettes, trophies, and banners. We will be utilizing the inventory we have on hand.
