Fair Board Cancels 2020 Calaveras County Fair & Jumping Frog Jubilee! Some Events Rescheduled to Fall!

Angels Camp, CA...(Frogtown, USA)..On April 7, 2020, upon the recommendation of Calaveras County Public Health, the 39th District Agricultural Association Board of Directors voted unanimously to cancel the 2020 Calaveras County Fair & Jumping Frog Jubilee, scheduled for May 14-17. After much deliberation and weeks of discussion the board concurred with the County Health Officer. In addition to the Fair, the Capitol Jump, Junior Frog Jump and Government Center Jump are cancelled.




It was not an easy decision for the board of Directors. The annual Fair represents 5.2 million dollars in spending activity annually. The Fair is not only an economic engine but a community lifeline for the County. Historically the only other cancellation was due to the Great Depression in 1933.

The Fair feels it is imperative to provide an avenue for our exhibitors who are raising Market Animals. The Junior Livestock Committee is working with fair to plan a virtual junior livestock auction and other virtual competitions for our exhibitors. The fair will be releasing specific details in the near future.

We are planning a Hometown Hoedown for October 2nd through October 4th, 2020. We will be hosting our community events, Miss Calaveras, Saddle queen, Makers Fair, Buckaroo, Stampede events, carnival and derby.

Calaveras County has been through Fire and Flood together. We are a strong, diverse, determined and kind community. We will recover and be stronger than ever. See you in October!


Keep Calm and
Frog on...

              County Fairs are agricultural showcases, and a standard event for all? counties in the state.

              Don't like it? Don't go, moron. Complaining about it on here makes you sound like a petty whiner.

      Why is it the locals don't appreciate their own community? You should be ashamed!

        Appreciating your community doesn’t mean you have to like every event. I love a lot of things in our county - the fair isn’t one of them.
        The rides are rickety and dangerous and the fairgrounds are dirty. The food is disgusting, and the people running the fair are all ex-con carnies.
        We haven’t even gotten to the clientele! Why would any of us want to hang out with a bunch of drunken, brawling bikers from the valley?
        The fair SUCKS.

    Sad! What a way to support your community! Negative posts shows your true personality. I'm guessing you made wrong choices in your life and now your are blaming others? This is to the half dozen negative pieces of s*** that post on everything on pine tree.

    Don't have any special events as this will keep the Flatlanders away from Calaveras County. There are many Flatlanders that don't know how to stay in place in their primary home in the valley or Bay Area. They are still arriving at their second home in Arnold and possibly spread the virus and not to mention cleaning out Big Trees Market of paper products and other essentials. Does anyone know how to enforce these Flatlanders to stay home during this pandemic?

      Last story I read said the Dorrington women traveled to the Central Valley and likely brought it home from there. Doesn’t sound as if the locals are demonstrating better.

      How smart! Let’s reschedule during the middle of fire season! Let’s bring all the tourists up who don’t understand fire danger in the foothills, pack them in all the Airbnb, vacation homes and campsites, and hope they don’t burn it all down.
      Great plan. 🙄

        Hate to burst your bubble but it’s pretty much fire season all year long now in the foothills.

            The safest time to reschedule would be in March. Next year. 🤪

        We've always been told not to plant summer veggies 'til Frog Jump. Does this mean we can't plant a garden this year? Asking for a friend.

              /\/\ Sorry but they don't accept pot plants at the fair. Maybe you could lobby for "special exhibits" at these fairs with your legislators? You'll probably get laughed out of halls of the legislature! They have more important things to discuss right now! BTW, freedom of speech!

Just a thought October is marijuana harvest time. Maybe we should judge best budding plants and so on. Winners win ribbons something new for a change

This is not canceling the fair! If they’re going to have a virtual auction for competitions and livestock selling, and then reschedule all the other events until October 2, how is that canceling it? Sounds like the only thing not there would be some musical, puppet acts or maybe some of the knife set and cookware exhibits! Or maybe a queen candidate or two that will be away at college by then.
It is so obvious that it is all about the lost revenue they are hoping to recover. Money guides so many decisions, and like other events, the fair IS a business. Not saying anything wrong with admitting that.
