August 13, 2020
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Tulsa State Fair has been canceled this year amid concerns about the coronavirus, joining the previous cancellation of the Oklahoma State Fair in Oklahoma City.
The Tulsa County Public Facilities Authority voted 5-0 to cancel the fair scheduled for Oct. 1-11 but said the Junior Livestock Show will continue.
"I know for us it is a huge hit in the loss of money, but for me the greater concern has to be the health of our community and those who come here and then go home," Tulsa County Commissioner and TCPFA Chair Karen Keith said during Tuesday's meeting.
