HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas State Fair Board voted Monday to cancel this year’s fair amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Its reversal came a week after the board initially voted to continue with the fair, sparking concern from vendors and the community about the COVID-19 pandemic, The Hutchinson News reported.

“We appreciate the thoughtful consideration you gave to open the fair as safely as possible. After that, we heard from a number of vendors who were genuinely concerned,” Kansas State Fair general manager Robin Jennison said.
