Fairgrounds facilities currently closed to the public:
We would like you to know that the McLeod County Fairgrounds would like to open our facilities as soon as possible but we need to follow the orders from the Governor so we will be monitoring his orders on a daily basis and let you know accordingly as soon as there may be any changes to the current status of our facilities.  In the event that the facility would still be closed due to COVID-19 restrictions on the date of your reservation, we would offer to move your reservation to a later date or issue you a complete refund.  We appreciate your patience during these unprecedented times and we look forward to the Governor's orders allowing us to open our facilities.
