Davis County has been forced to give up many of its favorite events due to the pandemic of 2020. The cancellation of the Davis County Fair has perhaps affected more people and created more disappointment than giving up any other celebration.

But this Saturday, the public has a chance to band together — as Davis County people are very good at doing — to support an event that could bring in a lot of money to make next year’s fair bigger and better than ever.

The LuEtta White Memorial Pie & Cake Baking Contest and bingo games have the potential to bring in thousands of dollars to support next year’s fair.

The public just needs to rally around the cause to make it successful.

Dig out that favorite pie or cake recipe. Enjoy a little time in the kitchen and take your creation to the Davis County Fairgrounds by noon Saturday.

The livestock pavilion — the site of the pie and cake auction — allows space for many bidders to safely social distance while bidding generously on their favorite pies and cakes at 5 p.m.

If you’re from Davis County, you surely enjoy bingo. Take a little money, go to the 4-H building at the fairgrounds from 2-4 p.m. and again after the pie and cake auction, and play a few rounds of bingo. (Socially distanced of course.)

If you can’t attend Saturday’s event, or don’t feel safe doing so, how about making a donation to the Davis County Fair Board?

Hopefully by July of 2021, Davis County citizens will have been vaccinated against COVID-19, the fair board will have sufficient funds to sponsor one of the best fairs ever, and the community can enjoy a traditional county fair with 4-H exhibits, livestock shows, entertainment, tractor pulls, a demo derby, a carnival, a lot of good food served by local producer groups, and a lot of good fun and fellowship.
