Rumors of fair violence unsubstantiated.

In the age of electronic media information can be shared faster that ever before. Sadly, all of the information that is shared is not true.
Recently there have been rumors of expected violence at the Wayne County Fair. After investigating these rumors we have be unable to validate any particular threats.

The safety of the fairgoers is the number one priority of both the fairboard and the Sheriff’s Office.
If you have attended the fair in the past, you have seen large numbers of deputies on site to ensure your safety. In addition to the deputies you see, there are additional deputies patrolling the grounds who are not in uniform.

Our staff will continue to keep a watchful eye while you enjoy the fair. If we receive creditable threats, we will share them at that time.
