The 2020 Linn County Fair, originally scheduled to be held June 24-28 is the latest event making changes due to the Coronavirus pandemic, according to a press release.

All ground and grandstand entertainment and concerts are called off. This includes the show featuring country act Sawyer Brown. They are working to be re-booked for 2021, and if they are and you purchased tickets, you can exchange them for the Friday night concert at the Fair in 2021. Simply bring your 2020 ticket to the 2021 event and you'll get in. If you'd like to exchange your Sawyer Brown ticket for an event of equal or lesser value other than the 2021 Friday night concert, take it to the grandstand booth prior to that event in 2021.

If you'd prefer a refund now, they will be issued through July 31, 2020. For online ticket refunds, please contact Etix directly here to submit a refund request, or call 1-800-514-3849 during normal business hours Monday through Saturday 8 a.m.-8 p.m.and Sunday 11 a.m.-7 p.m.
